Maintenance & Inspection

Tennessee’s Pavement Management Program, May 2013

The Tennessee DOT has published a Pavement Management Program document as part of the agency’s Standard Operating Guidelines.  The document provides detailed guidance on the use of preservation treatments as the Department faces flat revenues and rapidly escalating materials costs.

Utah’s Construction Inspection Guide

The Utah DOT has reported the development of an online ‘Construction Inspection Guide’ as a means of training and to address turnover / loss of experience. The guide is comprehensive and visual, including checklists, training presentations, and even some embedded videos (see Pavements chapter). The guide helps inspectors throughout the agency be consistent and gain a rapid understanding of critical issues surrounding all construction phases. This Guide should be of interest to agency staff, especially those newer to construction or as a refresher on some topics.
