This study will summarize state practices, conduct a forum, and recommend a strategy for implementing warranties in highway construction. As was pointed out previously, research in the area of pavement warranties is being conducted under NCHRP Project 10-68, Guidelines for the Use of Highway Pavement Warranties. The objective of Project 10-68 is to develop guidelines for the project-level application of pavement warranties. Given the similar nature of work, the decision was made to incorporate Project 20-07(201) into the initial phase of Project 10-68. A proposal for this research was received in September 2005 and subsequently approved by the panel. The contract for Project 10-68 was modified in November 2005.  A report covering this portion (i.e. Project 20-07/Task 201) of the combined project has been completed and sent to AASHTO for publication or posting.   (NCHRP Staff: D.
