Abstract:Pavement rehabilitation and preservation treatments have become standard practice for state and local transportation agencies. The ultimate goals include maintaining a safe and reliable level of service for all users, maximizing pavement service life, and optimizing budget allocations for infrastructure construction projects. The essential key to meet these goals requires transportation agencies to identify the right treatment for the right pavement at the right time. Based on the manuals of Bureau of Design and Environment (BDE) within the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), training course materials were developed in this project. The goals of the training course are to enhance the understanding of fundamental concepts of pavement rehabilitation and preservation strategies, establish consistent practices following the guidance manuals and minimize potential errors by selecting appropriate treatments. The training course is designed to be completed in one-and-a-half days, covering seven blocks: (1) Introduction, (2) Preservation and Rehabilitation Definitions, (3) Distresses, (4) Condition Rating Survey, (5) Testing, (6) Treatments, and (7) Selection Guidelines. The final completed deliverables of this project include PowerPoint slides for in-class instruction, a stand-alone online platform, and review and final examination questions for the initial three blocks.
