TRC1604 - Life Cycle Cost Analysis of Pavement Preservation Treatments in Arkansas

Currently, pavement preservation in Arkansas mainly consists of two inch overlays, chip seals, and crack sealing. Numerous other pavement preservation techniques are available and may be able to help stretch limited maintenance funds. It is widely accepted that more frequent preservation treatments are more cost effective than simply repairing recurrent damage. This project will quantify the life cycle cost of various proactive and reactive pavement preservation treatments including, but not limited to: sandwich seal, cape seal, slurry seal, and spray polymer emulsions. This project will evaluate the performance of each treatment, determine the treatment's role in extending the life of the pavement, and the life cycle cost of each treatment.
