property data for 85 SMA projects 1300 lane miles Up to 10 years service life Primarily 19 and 12.5 mm SMA mixes Excellent performance: Rutting: 0.04 inches/year (avg) Roughness (IRI): 3.2 in/mile-year (avg) Friction (FN): 1.3/year (avg) SUMMARY Inconclusive correlations between performance and mix properties Too little variation/deterioration of performance Too little variation in mix properties Many of the Maryland SMA sections look better today than when first opened to traffic! SMA looks good... Lets use it!
