Parking lots, municipal roadways, airports, and major highways all use some form of pavement. Pavements are constructed to provide a safe and durable riding surface for the travelling public. What kind of pavement is suitable for recreational trails and sidewalks? What are the functional requirements for low volume roadways? How can each be constructed and maintained in a cost effective manner? Pavement construction is very expensive and once the pavement is built, what is important to ensure that we are getting our money's worth? How do I determine when I need to "fix" something? What is involved? What are the costs?

Learning Objectives

  • 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.

Course Description

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.

Unique Features of the Course

While the course materials are structured, there is ample opportunity to explore any aspects of pavement design, evaluation and maintenance of interest to the participants. The instructor effectively uses discussion, case studies and real-world examples to highlight key aspects and interests of the group.

Target Audience

  • Pavement network owners and administrators;
  • Engineers and technicians involved in the design, evaluation, and management of pavements;
  • Provincial, municipal, and local agencies; and
  • Airport owners and maintenance staff.
