NAPA Webinars: Calculating Road User, Crash Mitigation, and Local Business Impact Costs from Maintenance and Roadway Reconstruction

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

One of the key differentiating attributes of asphalt is its speed of construction. To quantify this benefit, the National Asphalt Pavement Association's Pavement Economics Committee (PEC) funded a research project that is the first nationally-transferable, comprehensive, and inclusive set of data quantifying the costs of traffic delay, work zone crashes, and interruptions to local business operations.

On October 18, NAPA hosted a webinar taught by Auburn University's Dr. Jeff LaMondia. In that webinar, Dr. LaMondia discussed the first-of-its-kind research that looked to quantify the impacts associated with asphalt’s speed of construction.

On November 15, NAPA will host a second webinar. In this webinar, Dr. Lamondia will educate participants on an Excel workbook that is customizable to location, road type, and season. This tool can, quickly and in a statistically significant manner, calculate the impacts of construction and run scenarios to improve. 

The webinar will cover the following:

    • Interact with Auburn's Excel tool to quantify project specific costs.
    • Understand ways to highlight the data’s results to gain a competitive advantage.

Learn from Auburn University’s Dr. LaMondia about the team’s research and results highlighted through a case study.
