Determining Expected Life and Best Practices for Pavement Maintenance Treatments

The research objective is to develop Best Practices for pavement maintenance activities, and develop guidelines regarding how each maintenance treatment affects pavement life. The scope of work will include: (1) evaluating results of existing research, (2) developing long-term designed experiments to test and evaluate different maintenance treatments under different conditions (e.g., Eastern Washington compared to Western Washington), (3) analysis of early research results and establishment of long-term procedures for research monitoring, (4) development of Best Practices for maintenance treatments, and (5) development of guidelines for estimated effect of maintenance treatments on pavement life. The benefits of the guidelines developed from this project should be better planning and completion of maintenance activities, which will result in longer pavement life and reduced life-cycle costs.
