NYSLTAP - CLRP & NJ LTAP Low-Volume Roads Webinar:

Join us April 28, 2021 for the first in a series of mini webinars. These mini webinars are being offered "one time only" so do not delay in registering!

This webinar is geared toward municipal and county public works participants who manage and maintain local and rural roads. Low-volume roads (LVRs) make up more than half the centerline mileage in the United States.  Most local roads and streets are low-volume but are not actually designed. In this free webinar,

Our speaker, David Orr, will provide an overview of geometric and thickness design of roads and streets with less than 2,000 vehicles per day. We will also review the critical inputs needed for LVR pavement design and discuss ways for local agencies to design the thickness of their LVRs.

The The New York State LTAP - Cornell University Local Roads Program, a Rutgers CAIT research partner, worked with local highway agencies to develop a pavement design tool that can determine the needed thickness of a new asphalt layer using basic inputs and assumptions.

Webinar Outcomes:

Intended Audience: Individuals who are managing and/or performing construction, maintenance or repair on low-volume municipal roadways including: construction professionals, engineers, and public works employees, and street superintendents.

NYSLTAP-CLRP is also hosting expanded Low-Volume Roads webinars later this year. These webinars will be worth NYS PDH credit. Click here to learn more.
