Every Road is Different and should be Designed Accordingly

PEPG bring Utah’s premier experts on Pavement Design and Rehabilitation concepts and the materials used to construct them. Our experience ranges from local driveways and parking lots to interstate pavements, from traditional asphalt and PCC surfacing to multiple options for recycling, including Cold-in-Place Recycling (CIPR), Hot-in-Place Recycling (HIPR), Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR), and many others.

Our primary focus is placed on the recycling of the existing pavement to minimize impact and save construction time and cost. This includes the use of hot-in-place (HIPR) and cold-in-place (CIPR) recycling, full-depth reclamation (FDR) and mill and replace concepts, using standard AASHTO procedures and FWD analysis. With proper design information, PEPG can evaluate the remaining service life of these pavements and give accurate recommendations for proper treatment and timing to get the best performance out of the rehabilitation project.

Pavement Management: PEPG provides Pavement Design and Pavement Management experience to optimize initial designs and system rehabilitation strategies that are intended to reduce the overall cost, both initial and long-term to the owner.

PEPG is experienced in Airport Pavement design in accordance with current FAA standards including FAA Advisory Circular 150/5320-6E.

Examples of those we have already helped

400 North Rehabilitation - Saratoga Springs

Project Owner: Saratoga Springs Public Works Department

Project Specifications:

  • Resurfacing of roadway without removal and replacement of curb and gutter
  • 1 mile long, pavement is Saratoga Springs parade route and is “Crown Jewel” of their system
  • Design required a significant detail applied to evaluation of existing pavement, leaving existing road base in place, using Recycled Asphalt (RAP) for fine grading of base course surface
  • Paving controlled by digital terrain model to pave surface independent of curb lip profile resulting in significantly improved cross-slopes without cost of curb removal and replacement

Key Services Provided by PEPG:

  • Pavement evaluation and design
  • Civil design and roadway profile
  • Construction staking for initial grade setting
  • Construction administration and oversight
  • Project closeout

Soldier Canyon and Ophir Canyon Cold In-place Recycling (CIR)

Project Owner: Tooele County Roads Department

Project Specifications:

  • 10 miles of low-volume roads in Tooele County
  • Field evaluations and in-house mix designs allowed for the re-use of Recycled Pavement from the UDOT SR-36 project.
  • Final pavement surface was 3 inches of CIR followed by a chip seal.
  • Project cost was 25% to 30% cheaper than comparative thickness of HMA and is expected to perform similarly.

Key Services Provided by PEPG:

  • Pavement evaluation and design
  • Project plan set
  • Construction oversight

Highland City Pavement Masterplan

Project Owner: Highland City Engineering Department

Project Specifications:

  • Visual distress evaluation and categorizations of all pavement segments in Highland City
  • Subsurface pavement investigation and evaluation of all fair/poor performing pavement segments
  • Primary and secondary recommendations for pavement rehabilitation including cost estimates for prioritization
    • Pavement recommendations were categorized into:
      • patching/crack seal
      • surface seal
      • thin mill and overlay
      • thick mill and overlay
      • surface replacement
      • reconstruction
  • Our rehabilitation approach saved Highland City over $7 Million from the original estimate of $16 Million based on reconstruction

Key Services Provided by PEPG:

  • Pavement distress evaluations and rehabilitation recommendations
  • Coordination of Technical Advisory Committee to determine City prioritization preferences
  • Primary and secondary rehabilitation options based on timing of application
  • Summary report of prioritization recommendations and annual cost estimates
