The Pavement Preservation training is sponsored by NDLTAP, ASTECH, and ND APWA.


The on-site training will begin in the classroom with a review of pavement preservation methods and best practices, then continues into the field with road/street assessments and repair plan developments. Sessions will be customized to individual county/city needs. Customized class and road/street inspections sessions are designed to help locals understand their equipment, materials, road/street assessments, repair options, and to provide hands-on assistance.
