Description

Asphalt pavement is a major component of our transportation system. Transportation agencies at the city and county level can maximize the value of their huge investment in streets and roads by using proper pavement maintenance strategies. This course provides a solid working knowledge of the most common pavement maintenance and preservation practices. Basic principles, best field practices and safety issues are covered. This course is based on Day 3 of the IDM-03 Asphalt Pavement Materials, Design, Construction & Maintenance and is offered as a low-cost alternative to the three-day course IDM-03.
