Aside from constructing a new roadway, maintenance and repairs are one of the most expensive activities associated with pavements. While construction of new pavements is taking place, and others are rehabilitated, most pavements were constructed more than 30 years ago and now need attention to restore their structural and functional (i.e., ride, appearance) condition. This training session will focus on various phases of a pavement’s life cycle, from initial design and construction to maintenance and repairs. The instructors will discuss the typical failure mechanisms of pavements and the most economical approaches to restoration. Special attention will be devoted to the various preventive, corrective, and restorative maintenance activities available to pavement owners. We will answer the fundamental question – when should these activities be considered, and when should they not? Two group exercises will be held to reinforce the lessons of this session through a “What would you do?” approach. Upon completion, attendees will have a better understanding of the overall design, construction, and maintenance of pavements.


Learning Modules:

Module 1: Understanding Pavement
Module 2: Pavement Maintenance and Repairs
Module 3: Best Practices for Maintenance and Repair
Module 4: What’s New: Materials, Equipment and Techniques.
