Bruce Noel at the 1977 annual meeting of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (AAPT), “The single most important construction control that will provide for long-term serviceability is compaction.” When compaction is enhanced, in-place density can be optimized, thereby improving durability and extending pavement service life. A review of several past … Continue reading Use Good Compaction to Extend Pavement Service Life
