Construction Best Practices Guides Available

Flexible Pavements of Ohio’s Field Operations and Technical Committees collaborated on the development of two guidance documents on construction best practices. These documents, “Longitudinal Joint Construction Best Practices” and “Best Practices for Ensuring Uniform Mat Texture,” outline best practices to build better performing cold longitudinal joints and to produce mats with uniform surface texture, free from segregation.

The best practices documents are intentionally, brief, one-page, bullet point guides to serve as a handy, first reference for focusing the attention of paving crews to improving longitudinal joints and producing uniform texture mats. Additionally, each document lists references where in-depth guidance may be obtained.
