- Synthesize existing data and develop recommendations for a rational balanced mix design (BMD) approach for use by the New England transportation agencies.
- Gaps in testing and performance data will be identified through this project and an experimental plan for required future work will be developed.

VT AOT will implement aspects of this project. VTrans will base their pass/fail criteria for performance test results during mix design review/approval on the anticipated traffic loads, at least for Hamburg results. NHDOT feels the lowest level of BMD may be realistic and beneficial for to implement at some point in the future. The Connecticut Advanced Pavement Lab is building a library of BMD test results, which will be implemented once the library is complete.
