Pavement Repair

With a staggering number of roadways in need of repair across the U.S., the need for cost effective pavement improvement techniques remains one of the most pressing issues for roadway engineers and owners alike. In the past, many transportation agencies covered structurally sound concrete pavement with an asphalt overlay to improve the ride, friction or reduce tire pavement noise. With the recent increase in asphalt prices, the mill and overlay option is becoming far too expensive.

There are many pavement repair methods that will produce long term and cost effective solutions. From stitching, patching and sealing to dowel bar retrofit (DBR), the IGGA offers a variety of resources to meet these needs. Below, please find case studies, technical articles, fact sheets and other resources.
