We need new strategies to preserve and maintain our municipal roadways at an acceptable level of condition. This infrastructure is critical to the successful transportation of people and goods in any location. As cities and towns grow, so does the strain on our roadway infrastructure. One method that greatly reduces long term cost is preventive maintenance (PM). If the existing roadway is in fairly good condition and structurally sound, it can be treated with surface or near surface treatments that will cost effectively extend its service life. This webinar focuses on creating a successful roadway preservation plan, looking at common maintenance and rehabilitation treatments, PM treatment costs, discussing whether the benefits of applying PM treatments is cost effective, and discuss the dos and don’ts to ensure the successful use of PM treatments.
- Identify and document the preventive maintenance process and its key components
- Establish the steps necessary to plan and implement a rational preventive maintenance program
- Identify key components to determine, document and justify funding needs, prepare needs-based budgets, benchmark decision making parameters and promote the cost-effective use of pavement investments
- Implement decision trees and matrices to evaluate factors in determining which preservation treatments are appropriate for the right roadway at the right time
- Understand and use systems to document the positive impact of a sustainable pavement preservation program
- Know the conditions under which the use of specific pavement preservation techniques can be used
- Communicate to managers and elected officials the benefits of a structured pavement preservation program
