2014 - USA - Pavement Preservation Guidelines

This report presents a summary of pavement preservation activities and recommended uses, expected longevity, and expected pavement life extension. It also includes some basic information intended to be used by those less familiar with pavement preservation, pavement management, life cycle cost analysis, cost estimating, contracting methods and others to help inform and educate in this important aspect of pavement engineering. Tools and techniques are presented to assist local agency engineers in evaluating costs, benefits, timing, longevity, and the decision-making process for developing an effective pavement preservation program on an individual pavement segment or over an entire network. The report includes examples using real pavement engineering data from several cities and counties in Minnesota to demonstrate topics such as activity timing and the benefits of a preventive maintenance plan rather than a reactive one. A set of guidelines was developed as part of the associated project intended to serve as  reference material and as a training program.

Chris and Lis

We are Lis Pedersen and Chris Bennett. We’ve been married over 30 years and each found our way to New Zealand in the early 1980s from Denmark and Canada respectively. Golden Bay has been our happy place for almost 20 years and we are now based in Pohara just above the beach, with our two cats Coco and Max.
