Event Description

This webinar illustrates the impact of design, construction, and maintenance features on the long-term performance of flexible and rigid pavements.  The primary design, specification and construction factors that contribute to the long-term functional and structural performance of pavements ranging from parking lots to municipal roadways, airports and major highways are discussed.  Through a series of case studies, positive and negative features are presented to give the participant a good understanding of what we can do better to ensure the cost-effective use of transportation investments. 

Webinar Benefits
