Workshops: Asphalt Pavement Rehabilitation

September 14, 2021

This workshop provides an overview of the available technology and tools that make implementing an effective asphalt pavement rehabilitation program feasible. A successful pavement rehabilitation program encompasses a full range of rehabilitation strategies as well as maintenance treatments, with the goal of enhancing pavement performance (ride, quality, safety, service life, etc.) and life (LCC, pavement durability).

The workshop has recently been updated to provide attendees with the most current information, tools, and technologies. It offers guidance that can be used throughout the project development process, giving agencies the information they need to successfully select, develop, and construct the best rehabilitation process for their selected roadways.
