Your IPMA™ Tip of the Week LIVE FROM St. Charles, MO

Your IPMA™ Tip of the Week
LIVE FROM St. Charles, MO

You know, a lot of folks are starting to get excited about pavement management and rightfully so.

Be forewarned however that not all consultants out there providing these services are delivering all that they promise.

Recall that Scott McDonald and I did a podcast session on Better Roads Radio a while back, here is the link http://ipma.co/betterroadsradio/2014/01/16/episode-3-the-one-where-blair-corners-scott-mcdonald-ipma-advisory-board-member-and-paver-guru/ where we discussed the key essentials in setting up your data base.

Well, apparently there are still firms out there, buzzing around collecting data all over the country that pay little if any heed to the last M and R date or pavement section type for that matter.

Then, as you may have guessed our team swoops in and helps aid the agencies in fixing all the corrupted data that is input into the PAVER™ data base for your agency. (BTW, the same stuff likely happens with other software programs out there).

If your city or county is interested in setting up a pavement management program, and I don’t see why you wouldn’t be, take a look at this short video to learn the key essentials to pavement management basics SO THAT YOU DON”T HAVE TO ENDURE THE PAIN OF FIXING EVERYTHING at a later date.

Hope that didn’t offend anyone LOL.
Best, Blair

Anyhow, I took some time today at the North Chicago KOA to add a bit of spice to the original recording! After a few microwave meals and a few Blue Moons (with orange slices of course) voila! Please share and enjoy, and if you want to learn more about the HA5® High Density Mineral bond please contact any of our IPMA™ Charter Members, Holbrook, Andale, or Whitaker Contracting!!! see http://www.ipma.co for their contact info!!!

HERE IS YOUR TICKET ⬅︎TO ⬅︎SUCCESS

It’s for the LIVE Pavement Management Webinar hosted by Blair Barnhardt, APM.

Here are the four big things we’re covering:

1. How to stretch your budget with proactive and practical pavement management so your Mayor or Chairman will look like a RockSTAR (even though you are the one that did all the work, LOL).

2. How to collect pavement management distress data with StreetSaver® 8 distresses for asphalt and 7 for concrete roadways and parking lots.

3. How and why to run three different budget scenarios, unconstrained budget (as if you won the lottery with your local agency), target driven scenarios and regular budget scenarios (based on what money you currently have and expect to have in the long run).

4. There will be many more nuggets of information each Session along with Q and A at the end of each session, be prepared to send a list of questions to Lori (reply to this email) in advance and/or type them into the chat box during the live sessions.

WARNING: This is LIVE. I’m using GoTo Webinar, which can only hold 1,000 people. So it’s first come, first served. Register here.

P.S. Forgot to mention this! Naturally, I’ll be on to take your questions at the end.

Basic Asphalt Recycling Manual | B.A.R.M

What you will learn:

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 4.37.41 PMThe growing demand on our nation’s roadways over that past couple of decades, decreasing budgetary funds, and the need to provide a safe, efficient, and cost effective roadway system has led to a dramatic increase in the need to rehabilitate our existing pavements. The last 40 years has also seen a dramatic growth in asphalt recycling and reclaiming as a technically and environmentally preferred way of rehabilitating the existing pavements. Asphalt recycling and reclaiming meets all of our societal goals of providing safe, efficient roadways, while at the same time drastically reducing both the environmental impact and energy (oil) consumption compared to conventional pavement reconstruction.

The Board of Directors of the Asphalt Recycling and Reclaiming Association (ARRA), in their ongoing commitment of enhancing and expanding the use of asphalt recycling and reclaiming, recognized a need for a “Basic Asphalt Recycling Manual”. The manual was needed in order to expose more owners, specifying agencies, consultants, and civil engineering students to the value and current methods of asphalt recycling. To fill that need, this manual was produced to serve as a handy one-stop reference to those starting out in one of the various forms of asphalt recycling. In addition, it is hoped that this manual will provide additional useful information to those already in- volved in asphalt recycling.

This manual is not written in such detail so that one could use it to completely evaluate, design, specify, and/or construct an asphalt recycling project. It does however, provide information on:

• Various asphalt recycling methods
• Benefits and performance of asphalt recycling
• Procedures for evaluation potential projects
• Current mix design philosophies
• Construction equipment requirements and methods
• Quality Control/Quality Assurance, inspection and acceptance techniques

• Specification  requirements
• Definitions and terminology

Sufficient information is provided so that a rational decision can be made with respect to the feasibility and/or cost benefits of asphalt recycling. From that point, detailed design issues will need to be addressed by those experienced in asphalt recycling techniques prior to the final project design, advertising, tendering or letting and construction.

The benefits of asphalt recycling include:

• Reuse and conservation of non-renewable natural resources

• Preservation of the environment and reduction in land filling

• Energy conservation
• Reduction in user delays during construction

• Shorter construction periods

• Increased level of traffic safety within construction work zone

• Preservation of existing roadway geometry and clearances

• Corrections to pavement profile and cross-slope

• No disturbance of the subgrade soils unless specifically planned

• Such as for Full Depth Reclamation (FDR)

• Improved pavement smoothness Improved pavement physical properties by mod- ification of existing aggregate gradation, and asphalt binder properties

• Mitigation or elimination of reflective cracking with some methods

• Improved roadway performance
• Cost savings over traditional rehabilitation methods

It is important to recognize that asphalt recycling is a powerful method to rehabilitate pavements. When properly applied, it has long term economic benefits allowing owner agencies to stretch their available funds while providing the traveling public with a safe and reliable driving surface.

It is also important to recognize that, although asphalt recycling technology and methods has advanced, not all roadways are appropriate candidates for asphalt recycling. With the almost endless supply of roadways needing rehabilitation, it would be a dis- service to the public and the industry to use poor judgement in attempting an inappropriate recycling project. Hopefully, with this manual and the advice of those experienced in asphalt recycling, only projects that are suitable candidates will be undertaken.

The primary focus of the manual is on the in-place and cold recycling of asphalt pavements. Hot recycling of asphalt pavements through various types of asphalt plants is a well established recycling method. There is a wide variety of information on the subject available from well established sources and therefore has not been covered in any detail in this manual.
