Today’s increasing budget constraints require state and local businesses to perform more with less money. Until now, the emphasis on asphalt production and administration has been on building new roads, but the new focus is on maintaining and preserving existing asphalt surfaces. This shift has resulted in a closer look at asphalt maintenance operations and the many asphalt treatments that can be used for preventative, corrective, and emergency maintenance.
In this on demand webinar experts discuss an advanced approach to primary and preventive asphalt maintenance activities performed while the roadway or lot is in reliable condition (minimal distress) and asphalt that is in need of repair, reclaiming, or replacement.
Attendees will learn:
- Asphalt Maintenance and Preservation: The three types of asphalt maintenance: preventive, corrective, and emergency. Experts will also review asphalt management systems, how to determine a treatments cost-effectiveness and types of maintenance treatments.
- Recommended Treatment Practices: How to assess crack and surface treatments and pothole patching and repair challenges. In turn, solve these challenges with seals, filling, hot and/or cold mixes, overlays, and microsurfacing.
- Mixing It Up: The various forms of asphalt mixes including: Hot-poured, crumb rubber type, low-modulus, elastic, and Bituminous Fog seal and coat.
