In Minnesota, concrete pavements are finished by dragging an inverted turf or a stiff-bristled broom longitudinally on the surface of freshly placed concrete pavements, right behind the paving machine. Prior to 1998, most concrete pavements were finished with a combination of the burlap-drag and transverse-tining. Subsequently those pavements were reconstructed and finished with current broom or turf drag. The study sought to ascertain if current texturing techniques resulted in higher wet weather accident events. A Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) study selected segments in the network where current texturing techniques replaced previous textures. Annual wet weather accidents data from the Mn/DOT database were analyzed. By examining annual wet weather accident counts, total accident counts and crash rates for a ten year period, current textures were compared to previous textures. The paper discusses how 3 statistical tools were used to compare wet weather accident data from previous texturing to data from current texturing. Statistical tools showed that current texturing practices did not cause increase in the annual wet weather accidents, crash rates as well as ratio of wet to dry weather accidents in the chosen test sections. This paper was submitted to the Transportation Research Board for the 2008 Annual Meeting.
