Event description

Description

As transportation infrastructure faces rising traffic volumes and reduced budgets, municipal and provincial governments seek to secure the best value from their roads contracts, requiring durable pavement solutions with minimal maintenance and extended service lives.

“Best practice” approaches to achieve this include examining the different pavement alternatives available on the market and identifying the applications where solutions are most suitable.

For example, concrete pavements are ideal for heavy, slow-moving traffic loads, including turning lanes, intersections, roundabouts, and highways.

By allowing alternative concrete and asphalt pavement design bids and evaluating life cycle performance in terms of cost, carbon, and climate, owners can realize benefits from improved competition and optimize long-term sustainability and affordability. In other words, best value for investment.

This seminar will highlight the opportunities for concrete pavements in Saskatchewan, discussing the tools, materials and techniques available to build, maintain and repair municipal roads. Also to be provided is an introduction to the benefits of concrete pavements from design, construction and maintenance perspectives, including design examples from across Saskatchewan under a variety of traffic conditions.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • An introduction to concrete pavements, including design, construction, and maintenance overviews
  • An introduction to pavementdesigner.org for concrete pavement designs
  • How to optimize infrastructure investment through life cycle thinking and asset management
  • Guidance for the implementation of life cycle cost analysis, including an overview of a newly completed report on Equivalent Pavement Design, comparing “apples to apples” road structures specific to Saskatchewan
  • An introduction to Concrete Overlays and how they can be used to repair or extend the life of existing asphalt pavement
