FHWA Publishes Pavement Preservation Checklists

Transportation agencies are continually being asked to do more with less when maintaining their assets, and pavements constitute a large part of transportation infrastructure.

Pavement preservation treatments applied at the right time and place, using appropriate, high-quality materials and construction, can be very effective in sustainably extending performance life.

To aid in the ongoing preservation effort, the National Concrete Pavement Technology (CP Tech) Center worked with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to update its Pavement Preservation Checklists.

FHWA initially developed the Pavement Preservation Checklist Series in 2002 to guide state and local highway preservation/maintenance and inspection staff on the use of innovative pavement preservation techniques.

Checklists 17 through 23 cover concrete pavement preservation strategies. The remainder of the checklist series focuses on asphalt preservation strategies.

All 23 checklists are available for download from the CP Tech Center site here and from the FHWA site here.
