Evaluating Pavement Condition

Register now for Nevada LTAP's free instructor-led web conference, Evaluating Pavement Condition! This new workshop, being held May 19, 8:30–10:30 am PT, provides guidelines for conducting asphalt pavement condition surveys based on the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) methodology.

Agencies need to know what they have and its condition to make informed project and treatment decisions. PASER uses a single value to represent overall pavement condition. It is intended to be a consistent, objective, and repeatable pavement evaluation tool. During the training, you’ll learn to:

  • Identify common pavement distresses.
  • Assign appropriate PASER ratings based on observable conditions.
  • Identify suitable maintenance and rehabilitation treatment options based on condition survey information.

Show us your pavement! Participants are encouraged to bring photos of distresses in their network to class. Anyone without a basic understanding of asphalt pavement distresses is also encouraged to complete a 10-minute primer prior to class.

Note: This is the first in a series of trainings that support pavement management. This class is a prerequisite for Pavement Condition Assessment Field Training, a 4-hour in-person training that explains how to conduct pavement condition surveys using PASER ratings.
