Asphalt Pavement for Recreational Facilities

Asphalt Academy


This webinar will address the important factors that need to be considered when designing and constructing recreational facilities such as running tracks, tennis courts and golf cart paths. These types of facilities do not carry heavy loads and therefore need to be built differently than roads and freeways. This webinar will focus on designing and constructing surfaces to resist water intrusion which is a primary factor required to resist future environmental distress. Specific mixture requirements are needed to build a durable pavement that will resist environmental distresses such as cracking and raveling. Restricted work areas also present challenges that will be discussed during this webinar.

Topics covered include:

  • Pavement thickness and base construction
  • Asphalt binder selection
  • Aggregate selection
  • Mixture design and production considerations
  • Construction operations
  • Acceptance of completed work
