Geotextiles & DOT Specifications

JAN 2019

KYTC

US FABRICS GEOTEXTILES ARE ON THE LIST OF APPROVED MATERIALS (exception: US 4800). US FABRICS IS ALSO NTPEP/AASHTO COMPLIANT.

Kentucky DOT has developed their own geotextile specifications independent of AASHTO. Several product are Non-AASHTO M-288. However, to sell geotextiles on Kentucky DOT projects "manufacturers are required to participate in the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program(NTPEP) for Geotextiles and Geosynthetics." They also rely on ASTM-4199 Permeability. This has not been the industry standard for sometime due to the variability of thickness between competing products and within each manufacturer's products.

Below are US Fabrics' geotextile products approved for use by Kentucky DOT,  listed by their application.
