Posted By Tina Grady Barbaccia On January 17, 2014 @ 2:40 pm In The Roadologist | No Comments
The International Pavement Management Association (IPMA)  has set the record straight with its video about pavement preservation myths.
1. Pavement preservation is expensive.
2. Free training is always unbiased.
3. We have to continue to pave the way it has always been done.
4. Asphalt lasts 20 years.
Some other highlights of the pavement preservation video include:
A discussion on how to calculate your network level replacement value of roadways along with the percentage of that value that needs to be spent each year to maintain roadways. (11-minute mark)
Barnhardt’s promise to “prove” that pavement management doesn’t cost money, but that it actually costs money not to manage pavements. (13-minute mark)
How it will be possible for all of the asphalt paving contractors in America to increase their hot mixed asphalt tonnage output per annum to 800 million tons.
