NJLTAP – Low-Volume Pavement Design (Webinar)

  • April 28, 2021
  • 10:00 am–11:30 am

This webinar is being offered to municipal and county public works participants who manage and maintain local and rural roads. Low-volume roads (LVRs) make up more than half the centerline mileage in the United States.  Most local roads and streets are low-volume, but are not actually designed. In this free webinar, David will provide an overview of geometric and thickness design of roads and streets with less than 2,000 vehicles per day. We will also review the critical inputs needed for LVR pavement design and discuss ways for local agencies to design the thickness of their LVRs.

The Cornell University Local Roads Program, a Rutgers CAIT research partner, worked with local highway agencies to develop a pavement design tool that can determine the needed thickness of a new asphalt layer using basic inputs and assumptions.

Webinar Outcomes:

  • Identify what is an LVR
  • Select the critical inputs needed for LVR design
  • Compare LVR geometric design issues
  • Determine the design life of an LVR pavement

Intended Audience: Individuals who are managing and/or performing construction, maintenance or repair on low-volume municipal roadways including: construction professionals, engineers, and public works employees, and street superintendents.
