In the resource spotlight this week is the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center’s (CP Tech Center’s) series of updated and new pavement preservation checklist.
Originally developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 2002, the preservation checklists provide excellent information on innovative pavement preservation techniques. Designed to guide state and local highway preservation/maintenance and inspection staff, the checklists provide useful information to contractors and others with an interest in concrete pavement preservation, repair, and restoration.
Checklist topics include the following:
|• Joint and Crack Sealing
||• Full-Depth Repair
|• Diamond Grinding
|• Dowel-Bar Retrofit
||• Longitudinal Diamond Grooving
|• Partial-Depth Repair
The complete list of 2019 and 2002 checklists may be found on FHWA’s pavement preservation resource website. The CP Tech Center also includes a link to the resources on its curated online library of pavement preservation resources.
