VALUE ENGINEERING STUDY OF CRACK AND JOINT SEALING
This report summarizes the results of a cooperative value engineering study of crack and joint sealing. The objective of the study was to optimize the expenditure of maintenance resources through an in-depth study of crack and joint sealing materials and placement techniques. The report includes recommendations on crack preparation, materials, and application for sealing both asphalt and Portland cement concrete pavements. The general consensus of the States involved in this study was that sealing cracks will significantly increase pavement life. (Author)
