When it comes to the asphalt roads for which your agency is responsible, do you ever experience déjà vu--that feeling that you’re continually performing the same maintenance activities over and over on the same roads? Well, maybe there’s a better way to do this work that will keep you from having to come back again and again. That’s what the newly revised course, Roads Scholar #2, Maintenance of Asphalt Roads, is designed to do--to help you implement procedures for more effective maintenance of these roads that will extend their service life without the need for constant repetition.
