Utilities have been installed below roadways almost since the beginning of paved roadway surfaces in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century. The modern urban landscape includes buried water pipes, storm and sanitary sewer, steam pipes, electric, telecommunications. fiber-optic, gas, oil, etc. Whether new services lines are being installed or existing services are being rehabilitated or maintained, subsurface utility work frequently involves cutting and repairing the pavement structures and often result in increases in pavement deterioration and user delay due to construction. To combat these consequences, several new and emerging methods are being utilized to decrease the costs of pavement repair and improve the pavement conditions following subsurface work.
This webinar will present several utility cut pavement repair methods including precast concrete pavement, keyhole excavation and reinstatement, and infrared repair. We will define each method, review the processes and equipment used and show examples of their use. Finally, we will explore the repair method selection process to improve cost effectiveness. If you are a utility or roadway owner or contractor then you are not going to want to miss this presentation. This webinar should be attended by all owners and contractors performing or permitting subsurface utility work.
