Resilience is a growing concern in the transportation infrastructure community. Recent federal guidance encourages states to include resilience in their transportation asset management plans as many communities are experiencing a higher frequency of severe weather events and other changes to climatic conditions that can affect pavements. Although not traditionally viewed through the lens of resilience, asphalt pavements have numerous resilient attributes and are a critical resource to maintain a community’s transportation system.
1. Understand the resilient aspects of asphalt pavements.
2. Identify the tools available to incorporate resilience into asphalt pavement design, construction, and maintenance.
3. Explore the Federal Highway Administration’s approach to pavement resilience.
