The Pavement Design Criteria Manual addresses those factors having a significant effect on the pavement life and serviceability: subgrade, traffic loads, pavement material, future maintenance and special considerations such as swelling or collapse prone soils, slope instabilities and frost susceptible soils. This manual assumes that all of the parts of the pavement section and subgrade, trench backfill, hot mix asphalt, aggregate base course, etc. are constructed in accordance with the Standards Specification Manual and the Pikes Peak Region Asphalt Paving Specifications.
