John T. Harvey, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, Professor and Research Engineer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Davis, has been awarded the Frank M. Masters Transportation Engineering Award. This award is a memorial to the outstanding professional accomplishments of Frank M. Masters, Hon.M.ASCE.

Dr. Harvey has produced research, development, and implementation results in the areas of pavement design, materials, rapid construction, pavement management and the quantification of environmental impacts of pavement that are used around the world. 

Dr. Harvey is a recognized and accomplished leader in the field of pavement engineering whose innovative research aims at advancing the state of knowledge in the applied analysis of asphalt and concrete materials and pavements. Dr. Harvey has integrated his theoretical and laboratory work with full-scale accelerated testing to verify and validate his application of theory to practice. 

Dr. Harvey is among the founders of the Academy of Pavement Science and Engineering, whose mission is to serve the pavement science and engineering academic community through education, research, and professional development.

With more than 140 peer-reviewed publications, his research serves to improve the transportation system of the State of California and the nation and prompts agencies to effectively use their infrastructure investment to maximize the return from taxpayers' dollars. His current groundbreaking work in the area of pavement life-cycle assessment (LCA) and environmental product declarations (EPDs), are edging closer to adoption within California; and he has been a key player in work with the Federal Highway Administration's deployment effort on pavement sustainability. 

With his research expertise, energy, and ability to transform research to practice, Dr. Harvey has managed to set an ambitious research agenda for himself and has succeeded in advancing the cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research in pavements towards the realization of the professional community goals.

Dr. Harvey will be recognized at the ASCE T&DI International Airfield and Highway Pavements Conference in Chicago, IL, on July 22, 2019.
