This training is part of the "Asphalt Pavement Preservation Treatment" series which provides participants with an introduction to the Pavement Preservation Treatment Construction Guide (PPTCG) and the basics of pavement preservation. The PPTCG was created by FHWA, in partnership with Caltrans, the National Center for Pavement Preservation, and the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) as a resource for agency and industry pavement preservation practitioners.
This module provides an introduction to basic pavement preservation concepts and the different treatments available and how they should be applied, so agencies can make informed decisions when determining which treatments best fit their pavement preservation needs. Topics include: pavement structure, distresses, and differentiating pavement preservation from preventive maintenance.
