- Be able to recognize and use current common pavement design procedures.
- Understand common design and construction features important to the performance of municipal roadway, trail, and sidewalk infrastructure.
- Understand how to assess the condition of existing pavements and to use this information to determine appropriate maintenance and rehabilitation treatments.
- To design and recognize specification and construction activities that can improve the performance of pavements.
- To understand the production and placement of asphalt concrete.
- Communicate and promote good road design and construction practices.
This course discusses pavement design, specification, subgrade preparation, base/subbase and surface types and function, construction details, and long-term functional and structural performance considerations to ensure a long-life and effective product. It provides details on maintenance and rehabilitation procedures, how to evaluate both old and new and innovative pavement treatments using life-cycle cost analysis. Through a series of case studies, positive and negative design features and construction conditions are presented to give the participant a good understanding of what we can do better to ensure the cost effective use of transportation investments.
