The research plan that is proposed here is a follow up of the two-year project and aims to investigate and validate the performance of Eco-high performance concrete (HPC) mixtures under actual field conditions. The main goal of this follow-up project is to validate findings of the previous research project in the field implementation and to develop guidelines for the use of Eco-HPC for sustainable pavement and transportation infrastructure construction. The proposed project will employ two classes of Eco-HPCs for the following field demonstrations: Eco-Pave-Crete for pavement construction and Eco-Bridge-Crete for transportation infrastructure construction. The project will establish guidelines for material selection, mix design, casting, and performance of such sustainable infrastructure materials through the validation of field implementation. Quarterly Progress (Apr-Jun 2016): The Task Order was executed by Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) on July 8, 2016. Federal Regulations changed on June 30, 2016, which has caused a change in the F&A rate to go from 52.5% to 55%. This change will be documented via a letter that includes a new budget document. There will not be a formal supplemental agreement executed.
