The mission of the Texas Pavement Preservation Center (TPPC), in joint collaboration with the Center for Transportation Research (CTR) of the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) of Texas A&M University, is to promote the use of pavement preservation strategies to provide the highest level of service to the traveling public at the lowest cost. Together, we serve a broad range of needs for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the highway industry, and agencies within the highway community.
Our goals are to offer a means for promoting awareness of pavement preservation as a feasible and practical maintenance strategy by providing training courses in preservation methods, to operate as an information clearinghouse for the latest preservation techniques and procedures, and to provide TxDOT with a strategic research plan for supporting long-term pavement performance.
Pavement preservation research is performed at the state, national, and international levels. TPPC identifies the most promising of this research and serves as an intermediary to inform engineers and managers of the latest findings. TPPC also develops implementation strategies for the effective and efficient integration of these findings into current practices and procedures.
