Asphalt pavement is easily suffered from early damage under exposure to the natural environment. Regular pavement performance monitoring is mostly based on laboratory test, which could not simulate the actual pavement conditions effectively. Thus it is significant to develop an accelerated test facility. American Minnesota Road (MnROAD) is one of the complex and accelerated test roads in the world, aiming to develop and advance pavement design, operation and maintenance methods both for the highway and low volume road in extreme cold regions. The test cells and pavement materials of the MnROAD during different phases were introduced. Achievement obtained from the MnROAD will provide experience on new-generation pavement materials and design method, which will have positive impact on the development of pavement engineering.
