The long-term performance of road pavements is highly dependent upon the construction quality of the newly paved sections. The current assessment method used to evaluate the as-built quality of the newly finished roads utilizes relative density alone which may not necessarily reflect the actual properties that are required in the finished pavement. This research aims to perform comprehensive investigations concerning the hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavement permeability as a potential quality indicator of newly constructed roads. According to the conducted research, it is quite evident that considering the permeability along with relative density in the design mix procedure should provide a better indication and representation of the actual as-built physical condition of the newly constructed HMA road pavements.
