PROJECT OBJECTIVES: The purpose of
this project is to understand pavement maintenance techniques and the
interrelationship with the timing of their application in New England.
In order to accomplish this, the following objectives have been established:
- Identify the components of a Pavement Preventive
Maintenance (PPM) program.
- Evaluate the state-of-the-practice relative to agencies
(both US and worldwide) that have demonstrated successful implementation
of a pavement preservation program. Identify both single treatment
and multi-treatment strategies.
- Use current and past projects as appropriate to evaluate
techniques that have been successfully used to effectively extend
the life of the pavement.
- Identify and quantify the factors that influenced
the successful implementation of a preservation technique, including
time of treatment application in the existing pavement life cycle.
- Validate the treatment parameters and methodologies
using Accelerated Pavement Testing (APT).
- Determine the approximate cost for pavement preservation
- Develop an implementation pavement preservation manual
for distribution to the state and local transportation agencies within
the New England states.
