The Role of Ride Quality in Pavement Preservation, Safety and New Construction
Carl D. Rascoe, P.E.
Customer surveys, on both a national and local level, confirm that Pavement Smoothness is the number one factor when it comes to rating the nation’s roadways. In today’s elearning opportunity we will examine how to measure and how to use ride quality in maintaining an exceptional road network. Pavements that are built and maintained smoother reduce roadway accidents, decrease fuel consumption and vehicle maintenance costs, provide a longer service life (decrease dynamic loadings) and satisfy road users. JWL Profiling provides affordable ride quality measurements and the engineering support to incorporate these measurements into the Capital Improvement Planning process.
