T&DI and FHWA Announce the 2019-2020 LTPP International Data Analysis Contest

Friday, February 21, 2020

The Data Analysis Student Contest is a joint effort of the Federal Highway Administration's Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program and the Task Committee on the LTPP Contest, a subcommittee of the Highway Pavement Committee of the Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The contest is designed to encourage university students, professors, and highway agency engineers to get involved in using the LTPP database, and thereby contribute to a better understanding of pavement performance.

The theme for the 2019-2020 LTPP Data Analysis Student Contest is: Use the LTPP Data to Evaluate a Question or Concern for a Region or State

This year's contest also includes a challenge topic: Assess the Effect of Overweight Vehicles on Pavement Performance Using LTPP Traffic Data

Submissions are due by July 1, 2020. Winners will be recognized at the 100th Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, January 2021.

To learn more about the contest, please join a webinar on February 26, 2020, hosted by FHWA. Information on how to register is available here (.pdf).

We look forward to your participation in this year's contest. For more information, contact Debi Denney at  or visit the T&DI Contest Page to learn more.
