Section 6: Super Heavy Load Evaluation Process
CST-M&P will perform analyses for GVW over 800,000 lb. or GVW over 500,000 lb. and a trailer tire load exceeding 6,000 lb. with input data supplied by the affected districts and the Pavement Management Information System (PMIS). The pertinent information includes pavement typical section, visual distress evaluation, and FWD deflections. CST-M&P may conduct additional testing as needed. Figure 12-3 shows the flow chart of the super heavy load evaluation process.
