AASHTO M288 Selection Guide

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials is known as AASHTO. This organization was established by the State DOT's to work towards common goals. AASHTO consists of professionals from each of the states' highway and transportation departments. They are responsible for assigning route numbers for the U.S. route system. AASHTO's primary functions include: Advocating for transportation issues in Washington; facilitating information sharing between the State Dot's through meetings, workshops and the Internet; and developing globally recognized transportation engineering guides, standards and software.

One of those standards is AASHTO M288. AASHTO M288-06 is published within its two-volume "Standard Specifications for Transportation Materials and Methods of Sampling and Testing". GeoCHEM, Inc. offers geotextiles that satisfy AASHTO requirements. See the AASHTO selection guide below.
