Calculating Road User, Crash Mitigation, and Local Business Impact Costs from Maintenance and Roadway Reconstruction

Date: Thursday, October 18, 1:00–2:30 p.m. CST

Speaker: Jeffrey J. LaMondia, PhD - Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering Program Chair, National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University

One of the key differentiating attributes of asphalt is its speed of construction. To quantify this benefit, the Pavement Economics Committee (PEC) funded a research project that is the first nationally-transferable, comprehensive, and inclusive set of data quantifying the costs of traffic delay, work zone crashes, and interruptions to local business operations. Learn from Auburn University’s Dr. LaMondia about the team’s research and results highlighted through a case study.The webinar will cover the following:

  • Understand the research and its implications.
  • Learn about typical hourly costs of rehabilitation, and options to defray these costs, to users and local businesses.
