Asphalt 101

Why Asphalt? Performance for a Lifetime:

New asphalt pavement surfaces typically last 18 years before needing easy-to-perform maintenance, and Perpetual Pavement designs allow the structure of a road to last indefinitely. That’s the value owners and drivers demand, for today, tomorrow and the future.

Innovation and Sustainability – The Future of Asphalt Pavement:

Hear from professors at University of Missouri and Missouri S&T. William Buttlar, Ph.D., P.E., Glen Barton Chair in Flexible Pavements, University of Missouri and Magdy Abdelrahman, Ph.D., MAPA  Endowed Professor, Missouri S&T will discuss their programs and the future of asphalt pavement.

LCCA: Your Guide to Understanding Asphalt Perpetual Pavement:

Life-Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) is a detailed process purchasers use to select various alternatives. These LCCA  alternatives can range from Vehicles, surface treatments to pavement type selection. Learn about the basic techniques and tools available to assist LCCA decisions.

Professional Development Hours (2 hours) are available to those who attend.
