Much of our public and private infrastructure is aging and in poor condition. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) rated U.S. infrastructure as a “C” on their recent report card.

Selecting the appropriate repair strategy at the right time could save costly emergency repairs. The presenter will provide an overview of hot mix asphalt components, discuss common signs of deterioration and/or deficiencies, and identify lower-cost maintenance or repair alternatives.
