The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of OGFC pavements in Alabama and determine methods for improving durability. The scope of the research included field work and lab investigations. Field work involved a field survey and coring on selected projects for laboratory testing. International roughness index (IRI) data from the pavement management system of the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) was analyzed to help determine the nature of distresses and identify whether the problem was consistent throughout the pavement section or localized.

Description:  Roads and highways play an essential role in a community's ability to deliver necessary services after a natural disaster. Pavements also need to be adaptable to changing environmental conditions, such as more frequent flooding from sea level rise and weather pattern changes. There are factors to consider in designing and repairing pavements to improve adaptability and ensure that the resources are readily available to make necessary repairs quickly. This webinar uses examples from recent storms, floods, and earthquakes to teach owners and agencies how to prepare for post-natural disaster needs and how to create a more resilient transportation network.
