PaveXpress is a free web-based pavement design tool available for use by local agencies, engineers and architects who need a reliable way to quickly determine the necessary pavement thickness for a given section of roadway or project. This webinar presents the latest update to this software including the incorporatoin of a Life Cycle Cost Analysis module.
Encouraged and endorsed by AASHTO and FHWA, LCCA is an economic analysis tool to compare various pavement strategies following deterministic and probabilistic approaches . Using the methodology put forth in FHWA’s RealCost™, participants in this webinar will learn how the tool can be used with new construction, reconstruction and major rehabilitation projects. Additionally, participants will learn about the major influences on LCCA outcomes, the need for factual data to develop approaches, and the other considerations for selecting a final pavement type.
