AASHTO Publishes Update to Materials Standards
May 3, 2017

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) has announced the recent release of the first of three 2017 updates to its web-based edition of Standard Specifications for Transportation Materials and Methods of Sampling and Testing, and AASHTO Provisional Standards, 2017 Edition, commonly referred to as the “Materials Standards.”

Developed by the AASHTO Subcommittee on Materials, the Materials Standards contain specifications, test methods, and provisional standards commonly used in the construction of highway facilities.

The April 2017 update includes four (4) new and twenty-four (24) revised standards, and revises the sections on Hydraulic Cement and Lime, Fresh Concrete, Hardened Concrete, Pavement Measurement, Bridge and Pavement Preservation, and Quality Assurance and Environmental.

An informational flyer and an explanatory video have been developed to provide more details about the features and functionality of the web-based format.

To obtain a copy, visit the AASHTO Bookstore, and search by the item code HM-WB.
