    • California Asphalt Pavement Association2013 Spring ConferenceAmarjeet S. BenipalState Pavement EngineerApril 25, 2013
    • 12 distinctly different Caltrans Districts with varying needs
    • Pavement Inventory 16,400 lane milesUrban Areas 70%Rural Areas 30%Concrete Asphalt 33,200 lane milesRural Areas 70%Urban Areas 30%3
    • 2011 State of the Pavement
    • Caltrans Pavement Objectives1. Sustainability2. Asset Management3. Worker Safety4. Future Financial Trends
    • What is Sustainability?“Meeting the needs of the present withoutcompromising the ability of future generationsto meet their own needs”World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987
    • How Is Caltrans Being Sustainable?By building pavements to last multiplegenerations, with as much recycled materialas possible.• Quality & Performance• Cost Effectiveness
    • Caltrans Sustainable PavementInitiatives Efforts1. Planning2. Design3. Materials & Technologies4. Preservation
    • Sustainability – PlanningLife Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA)
    • Life Cycle Cost Analysis - DesignAnalysis done to find the most cost effectivepavement based on cost associated with:InitialCostMaintenanceCostAnticipatedRehabilitationCostUserDelay
    • Sustainability – DesignLong-Life Pavement1. Asphalt PavementAsphalt: I-710, I-5, I-80 etc2. Concrete Pavementa. Jointed Plainb. Continuously Reinforcedc. PrecastConcrete: I-680, I-710, I-15 etc
    • Sustainability –Materials & Technologies1. Rubber Hot Mix Asphalt (RHMA)2. Pavement (RAP) / Recycled AsphaltShingles (RAS)3. Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA)4. Recycle Concrete Aggregates5. Supplementary Cementious Materials
    • Sustainability –Materials & Technologies6. Cold In-Place Recycling (CIR)7. Full Depth Recycling (FDR)8. Porous Pavement– Asphalt & Concrete9. Smooth Pavement10. Quiet Pavement
    • Rubber Hot Mix Asphalt (RHMA) RHMA been successfully used in CA for over 30 years. CA generates more than 44 million scrap tires every year. A two-inch RHMA overlay uses about 2,000 scrap tires perlane mile.15.610.95.915.717.934.230.436.329.523.630.5 34.701020304050200020012002200320042005200620072008200920102011201220132014201520162017AmountofRHMA,percentCalendar year352520AB 338 Goals
    • Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP)& Recycled Asphalt Shingles (RAS) Adds recycled asphalt pavement to HMA mix Pilot projects in 2012/2013. Caltrans supports RAP because it is:Cost effective.Reduces the aggregate use preserving landfill space.Reduces green house gases emissions.
    • Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA)Accomplishment: One Million Tons PavedRHMA-GOGFCRHMA-ODGAC
    • Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA) Used as Base Materials Development of new and revised standards Use of available materials
    • Supplementary CementiousMaterials
    • Cold In-Place Recycling
    • Full Depth Recycling
    • Pervious Pavement Porous Asphalt Pervious ConcreteCited in threeLeadership in Energyand EnviornmentalDesign (LEED) creditsunder SustainableSites: 5.1 6.1 6.2
    • Smooth Pavement1. Fuel Efficiency2. New Construction at IRI 60 or less3. Use of Inertial Profiler
    • Quiet Pavement1. Quality of Life2. Both Asphalt & Concrete Pavementsa. Open Grade Friction Course (OGFC)b. Grindingc. New Generation Groove / Grind
    • Focus on Pavement Preservation Increase efficiency of project selection:Right pavement strategy at the right timeAgePavementconditionPreservation @ $1Rehabilitation @ $6Reconstruction @ $20

    • Asset Management
    • Worker Safety• Select the Right Strategy– Quality Assurance– Longer Lasting– Would Not Haveto Come Back toRepair or Fix It– Less WorkerExposureto Traffic
