Solutions: Readers helping readers

You have questions, we’ll find answers – but with your help! Our new Solutions section on will help you find answers to your questions. Send us a detailed description your problem, and we’ll post it in our new Solutions section we’re rolling out on with a call for solutions. We know our readers are experienced and savvy. Why not help each other? Better yet, have you encountered a challenge and have been able to successfully solve it? We want to know about that, too, to help other readers. We’re bringing you together to help each other – even if it’s virtually. It’s all about the web today, anyway, isn’t it?

We already have a solutions article in the works from Dragos Andrei, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, an associate professor in the Civil Engineering Department of Cal Poly Pomona. This article will provide basic information for those interested in integrating recycling and reclaiming strategies in their pavement management systems (PMS). In addition, agencies are encouraged to raise the bar and require that maintenance and rehabilitation recommendations always include several alternatives of which at least one specifically addresses sustainability.

But wait, there’s more! If a problem you need help with appears on the website, or if your solution is posted as you try to help, you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to attend a game with National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide at Bryant-Denny Stadium (a night’s lodging and game ticket) in Tuscaloosa, Ala., the hometown of Better Roads. We guarantee it will be good time!
