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 preservation strategies. This course provides a solid working knowledge of the most common asphalt pavement maintenance and preservation practices. Common preservation treatments, basic principles, best field practices and quality assurance issues are covered. This is a core course in the pavement engineering and management training program offered by the City and County Pavement Improvement Center (CCPIC) in partnership with TechTransfer.
