Webinar Overview:
If you are responsible for maintaining roads in a desert region or in a country with a frozen tundra such as Greenland, then perhaps this webinar is not for you. However, if you are responsible for maintaining roads in areas with rainfall, then drainage layers should be very important to you. Drainage layers offer an excellent preservation method that can serve as an alternative to traditional preservation techniques. Participants Earn One Professional Development Hour.

This webinar will address the following areas of roadway drainage:

-Are our roads designed well enough to not require drainage?
-Benefit of drainage layers to PCC and HMA Pavements
-Drainage layer locations
-Design and specification considerations
-Case Studies
