Pavement Tools Consortium

The Pavement Tools Consortium (PTC) is a partnership between several state DOTs, the FHWA, and the University of Washington to further develop and use computer-based pavement tools. The major focus of the pavement tools is the enhancement of pavement-related training and construction operations. The Consortium will be funded via a Pooled Fund arrangement and managed by the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Maryland State Highway Administration. The solicitation has been posted on the FHWA web site at: http://www.pooledfund.org/projectdetails.asp?id=794&status=1

University of Washington

The University of Washington (UW) is proud to be the principal partner in the development, and continued success of Pavement Interactive and the PTC. The team at the UW consists of efforts by many individuals, but the following is the list of principals involved directly in PTC projects and meetings:

  • Joe Mahoney, lead investigator, familiar with all tools
  • Steve Muench, lead content developer of Pavement Guide Interactive
  • George Turkiyyah, co-developer of Xpactor and EverFE
  • George White, lead developer of Pavement Interactive, HMAView, PMSView, and Media Library


  • Caltrans
  • Federal Highway Administration
  • Florida Department of Transportation (DOT)
  • Idaho Transportation Department
  • Illinois DOT
  • Kansas DOT
  • Maryland State Highway Administration
  • Minnesota DOT
  • Texas DOT
  • Washington State DOT


The PTC was initiated by the UW team, but would not have been possible without the efforts of both the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and the Maryland State Highway Administration in getting the consortium off the ground. Specific thanks go to Keith Anderson from WSDOT, the original coordinator of the consortium.
