Constructing Quality Asphalt Pavements

Asphalt Academy


Constructing high quality, long-lasting asphalt pavements is the ultimate goal of our industry. In this seminar, you will learn the basics of each of the important steps in the process. These steps include selection of the right component materials, how best to combine the materials in the mix design, how asphalt mixture is produced and hauled to the project, best practices for preparing the underlying layer for paving, placement/laydown and compaction of an asphalt pavement. We will also discuss the important quality assurance process during each of the critical phases of construction in order to make sure quality is achieved. This seminar is intended to be interactive and plenty of time for discussion and questions have been built into the agenda.
