You will learn techniques for the effective assessment of the condition of flexible pavements including surface distress, roughness, structural capacity, etc. The assessment methods will be used to develop an understanding of the timing and extent of pavement maintenance, preservation and rehabilitation techniques to preserve and cost-effectively
extend the service life of the pavement. You will benefit from real life examples of successes and failures of pavement rehabilitation techniques.
• Learn effective techniques for pavement maintenance programs
• Understand the pavement maintenance process
• Establish a sustainable pavement preservation program
• Understand needs for pavement condition assessments
• Highlights of flexible pavement rehabilitation procedures
• Understand life-cycle costing
• Justify funding needs
• Communicate needs to managers and elected officials
• Descriptions of flexible pavement distress types and causes will not be discussed in detail as part of this course.
• This course is only offered during odd numbered years
