New App Brings Pavement Preservation Checklists Straight to Your Smart Phone

Pavement preservation just became more efficient, thanks to a free mobile application released by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). FHWA’s Pavement Preservation Checklists are now available on smart phones that use the Android™ operating system and BlackBerry® phones. They will soon be available on iPhones®.

The 14 checklists were created to help guide State and local highway maintenance and inspection staff in the proper use of pavement preservation processes. Users can find checklists on topics ranging from using thin hot-mix asphalt overlays to performing full-depth repair of concrete pavements to applying crack seals to pavements. The new application provides highway agencies and contractors with all of the checklists in an easy-to-use mobile format, ensuring that highway workers have the information they need on the job site.

To obtain the free app, visit the Android Market or BlackBerry App World on a smart phone and enter “FHWA” into the search field. For additional information on the Pavement Preservation Checklists, visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/pub_details.cfm?id=350.
