Best Management Practices for Concrete & Asphalt Pavement
The right rating methodology to collect the right amount of data
Nobody has unlimited time—or unlimited funding—to collect every piece of data for a pavement network. WithersRavenel helps clients choose the methodology that will yield enough accurate data to make sound maintenance decisions and maximize available funding.
WithersRavenel has surveyed and rated more than 20,000 centerline miles of municipal roads in the U.S. Southeast using these industry-standard rating methodologies:
- ASTM D5340
- ASTM D6433
Repair recommendations tailored to maintenance goals and funding
There’s more to pavement repair than simple resurfacing or mill-and-fill. WithersRavenel is familiar with a range of rejuvenators, sealants, overlays, hot and cold in-place recycling techniques, and full-depth reclamation and reconstruction. When preparing work plans, we recommend repair techniques that help clients extend the life of their pavement where feasible and enable larger rehabilitation projects to be grouped together for schedule and budget efficiency.
Powerful software tools to leverage pavement data
A find-it, fix-it approach to asset management may keep infrastructure running for a while, but it tends to lead to problems requiring expensive and disruptive emergency solutions. Lifecycle and predictive modeling move clients from reactive to proactive asset management. By planning repair and replacement activities in advance, communities can combine pavement projects with underground utility projects, preventing costly rework—because who wants to resurface the same road twice?
In addition, data visualizations help stakeholders understand why maintenance activities are needed and where their dollars are going. Communities with a clear roadmap for pavement management are more likely to secure critical infrastructure funding.
