This report summarizes finding of a long-term evaluation of the construction and performance of asphaltic concrete and portland cement concrete shoulders. Performance was used as the basis for the development of empirical criteria that permit the use of existing pavement thickness design procedures for the structural design of shoulders. Minimum thicknesses were determined on the basis of performance and review of literature.
