Projects

ORITE develops transportation infrastructure and environmental engineering solutions by monitoring and evaluating the health of bridges, pipes, and pavement; characterizing and evaluating the performance of materials; monitoring foundations and retaining walls; examining highway safety and winter maintenance; studying noise abatement for highways; performing subsurface characterization and exploration, andĀ inventing solutions for the remediation of highway stormwater runoff and acid mine drainage. ORITE was selected by the Ohio Department of Transportation to research the design and construction of "perpetual pavement" with double the lifespan of typical pavements.
