Asphalt pavements are quick to construct, but this traditional wisdom has rarely been quantified — until recently. Using a case study, learn how researchers quantify speed of construction with user costs and local business impacts and learn also from a contractor on how asphalt’s speed of construction was a winning component to their bid. Agencies can gain a more holistic view of the total economic impact of a construction project. This analysis helps the agency make an informed decision surrounding the economic and construction costs associated with large pavement projects.
