The Asphalt Advantage: Perpetual Pavement

NAPA released a two-page flyer on the benefits of partnering to build long-life Perpetual Pavements. Focused on the collaboration between Caltrans, industry, and academia, this case study highlights Perpetual Pavements being built by Granite Construction Co. and Teichert Aggregates in California to conserve natural resources and provide cost-effective pavement solutions. An analysis of the I-5 Sacramento Corridor project by the University of California Pavement Research Center found that using a Perpetual Pavement design methodology saves Caltrans approximately $40 million in undiscounted direct asphalt paving costs over the next 60 years.
