In our last video about age-resistant asphalt pavements, we learned how a lack of age-resistant binder is wreaking havoc on our roads. Now, we uncover how to implement strategies that “up the ante” and build longer lasting roads.
The Original Woman of Asphalt During the 2018 APA California Conference Amy Miller and Natasha Ozybko sat down with Dr. Rita Leahy, the acclaimed “Original Woman of Asphalt,” and the first guest in a series of interviews highlighting women in the industry.
I’ve said it before. To me, the perfect road is one that is designed with binder that is resistant to the elements of aging. However, current industry standards do not require binder performance to last past the two-year mark. This oversight is one reason why we’re continuing to see premature pavement failures. Watch our video to learn how a lack of age-resistant binder is wreaking havoc on our roads.
