Low Cost of Ownership

Effectively Using Funding to Address Pavement Issues

Life Cycle Cost Analysis

To achieve sustainable, long-term solutions, we must account for both economic and environmental costs over the lifetime of a project. Initial costs don’t tell the complete story.

Asset Management

This refers to how DOTs budget and plan for roadway improvements. DOTs must make sure their asset management is as cost-effective as possible. Research has found that that requires a long-term approach with a “Mix of Fixes”.

Competition – Dual Pavement Systems

Healthy competition between pavement types provides a number of benefits. First, it can save a DOT (and the taxpayers) millions of dollars. Second, competition spurs innovation. And third, competition can positively impact paving delivery (finishing projects sooner).
