Nevada LTAP hosts this two-day class, free to local agencies.

National Highway Institute (NHI) 131139 introduces asphalt pavement construction best practices, from the importance of understanding project administration roles and responsibilities to the most vital elements of laydown operations and compaction. Participants learn contract administration techniques, recognize proper construction practices, identify construction issues and their source, determine the impact of construction issues on performance, and select communication strategies for contractors, consultants, and superiors. They can then apply the knowledge and skills to maximize quality on construction projects.

The importance of a proactive approach to managing and inspecting construction projects is emphasized at every stage. This includes quickly addressing problems, implementing corrective actions, and documenting communications between the agency and contractor.

This course is eligible as a substitute for the NVLTAP Road Scholar elective course, Asphalt Paving Technology & Maintenance.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for participants who ensure a project is built to the owner’s specifications. Participants can be relatively new to asphalt or general project inspection. Participants with broader experience can also take the course to learn about innovative asphalt pavement construction technologies, participate in class discussions, and share successful practices. The primary audience comprises Federal, State, consultant, and local agency inspectors and contractor personnel who are involved in the preconstruction, construction, and review of asphalt paving projects. Multi-district or region attendance is encouraged to get a broader range of perspectives and ideas.
