Description

Pavement Preservation Best Practices

Preventive Maintenance isn’t filling potholes. It’s pothole prevention! It’s a best practice intended to protect the investment in our most expensive public asset; the public road network.

Just like neglected oil changes lead to costly engine repairs, the cost to repair roads goes up as conditions deteriorate. Most local road agencies are using one or more of the treatments in the capital preventive maintenance toolbox. That’s a good start.

Pavement preservation is a long-term strategy that puts cost-effective preventive maintenance treatments into a plan that extends pavement service life, improves safety, provides a road network that meets community needs, and ensures the best use of taxpayer dollars. The best practice requires moving from reactive to a proactive strategy.

Interactive sessions with industry and local agency experts will provide the best practices for the design and construction of preventive maintenance treatments and give you the tools to determine where these treatments fit into your asset management plan.
