Asphalt Pavement Alliance: An Introduction to LCCA and LCA
June 6, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am| Free
Life cycle thinking provides a framework for understanding the economic and environmental aspects of a product over its complete life cycle. The pavement community commonly uses life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) to understand agency costs and user costs throughout the entire life cycle of a pavement. Agencies and other stakeholders are also starting to use life cycle assessments (LCAs) to quantify the potential environmental impacts of pavement designs at both an individual project level and a network level. This webinar will provide an overview of LCCA and LCA, with a focus on how these tools are applied to pavements to aid decision-making.
