Pavement Maintenance

Road pavement maintenance concerns the action of keeping a road or highway in a state of good repair. It includes monitoring pavement health, addressing and fixing delamination, cracking, and potholes, and maintaining proper pavement lane markings and striping. Also of concern is addressing snow and ice on roadways, keeping roads clear and drivable, and snowplow fleet maintenance and control.
