Enquiry
Section 2.4.7.2 of Addendum 2 states the following “The pavement design shall be carried out in accordance with PERF 2272. A design life of 15 years shall be used with 0.72M ESAL’s for the entire project limits, based on AADT of 370, 25.0% commercial vehicles and 13 FHWA truck classification breakdown noted below”. Based on our calculations of the AADT, truck classification provided in the Table in Section 2.4.7.2, typical growth rate, and the associated truck factors as indicated in the MTO publication MI-183, the resulting ESAL’s are not the same as the 0.72M ESAL’s specified above. Can the Ministry please review the conflicting Traffic Data as this will have an impact on the minimum asphalt thickness specified?
