Pavement Preventive Maintenance Participant Workbook General Interest: provides practical guidance to engineers responsible for the day-to-day design, construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of pavements. Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Pavement System Preservation

Description: This training course on Pavement Preservation: The Preventive Maintenance Concept provided an introduction to the concept of pavement preventive maintenance, including a description of available tools and technology that make the implementation of a pavement preventive maintenance program feasible. Targeting an audience of upper management and policy makers in highway agencies, the course focuses on the information needed to develop or improve a preventive maintenance program and illustrates the steps that five states have gone through in the development of their own preventive maintenance programs. Considerably less emphasis is given to the actual pavement preventive maintenance techniques themselves, although an extensive listing of pertinent references is provided for each technique.
