This technical memorandum presents the results of pavement evaluation and rehabilitation design of 02-PLU-36, PM 6.3/13.9. The pavement evaluation consists of deflection testing, coring, material sampling, backcalculation of stiffnesses, and condition assessment. Rehabilitation designs were developed using standard Caltrans methods. Alternative rehabilitation designs were developed using mechanistic-empirical software and models (CalME). Performance of all designs was assessed using mechanistic-empirical models. Suitable designs are recommended.
