Friction, Texture, Profile Equipment Loan Program

In September 2010, the Federal Highway Administration awarded APTech and its teaming partner, the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute, a Task Order contract to administer the agency’s Friction, Texture, and Profile Measurement Equipment Loan Program. The Task Order, which is funded through the FHWA’s Pavement Surface Characteristics program, provides state highway agencies and closely affiliated research institutions with the opportunity to request and take loan of a Circular Texture Meter (CT Meter) and/or Dynamic Friction Tester (DF Tester) in order to become acquainted with these devices or use them as part of a pavement friction/texture testing study. The loan program also includes the opportunity to receive remote and/or on-site technical assistance, including training and demonstration of the devices and assistance in using them in the field.


The task order contract for the Equipment Loan Program is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2016.  No loans will take place after this date and no loan requests are currently being accepted.  For additional information or inquiries about the program, please contact Mr. Kelly Smith.
