The impact floods have on the pavement response and performance is the amount of damage and/or cracking and rutting will increase. The level of increase, however, depends on many factors including: the pavement structure (layer thicknesses and layer or material types), length of time the pavement is flooded, resulting degree of saturation in the unbound layers, and amount of truck traffic traveling over the pavement after the water recedes.
