October 20 - WisDOT Asphalt Technical Update (WisDOT Bureau of Technical Services)
In collaboration with industry representatives, WisDOT develops best practices to ensure pavement performance by specification revisions and implementing innovations through research and partnerships. In this webinar, there will be an emphasis on continued communication with stakeholders to improve the quality of asphalt pavements to deliver a quality transportation system that is essential for public safety and economic prosperity.
October 27 - Asphalt Pavement Resilience (Dr. Ben Bowers, NCAT)
Resilience is a growing concern in the transportation infrastructure community. Recent federal guidance encourages states to include resilience in their transportation asset management plans as many communities are experiencing a higher frequency of severe weather events and other changes to climatic conditions that can affect pavements. Although not traditionally viewed through the lens of resilience, asphalt pavements have numerous resilient attributes and are a critical resource to maintain a community’s transportation system.
November 3 - Milling for Quality (Austin Miller, BOMAG)
Milling is the removal of often distressed asphalt mixtures from a pavement structure. While some just see milling as the process of generating reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) which can be used in future projects, milling can also positively or negatively impact the quality of rehabilitation efforts.
November 10 - Designing a Perpetual Pavement (Dr. Dave Newcomb, Texas A&M)
This webinar will discuss material selection and mixture design to optimize Perpetual Pavement performance, discuss current perpetual design practices, and present best practices for construction of high quality, high performance pavements.
