Preservation of Flexible Pavements in Connecticut -- Case Study

Route 82 in Connecticut received a 2007 Perpetual Pavement Award from the Asphalt Pavement Alliance (APA). This paper presents a comprehensive look at this pavement, including the construction details from 1971, historical and current traffic volumes, up-to-date performance, and preservation activities applied since the original construction. Pavement performance is shown in terms of the annual trends for cracking collected by the Automatic Road Analyzer (ARAN). The historical trends in pavement deterioration are analyzed and compared with those of similar pavement sections in Connecticut (Route 9) to determine the major factor(s) that contributed the most to the long-lasting service of Route 82. Special emphasis is made on the pavement preservation techniques and their timing.
