This webinar will focus on Thinlays™ through the lens of road owners. The presentation will discuss how they fit within pavement management systems, when and how they should be used, how to develop and specify Thinlay™ mixes, and best practices for Thinlay™ construction. Also included will be input from current municipality and DOT engineers familiar with this application. This presentation will be led by James Purcell, PE, a consultanting engineer very familiar with this application.
Registration for the FREE Two Decades of Positive Thinlay Performance at the NCAT Pavement Test Track webinar that will be conducted by Dr. R.
