Local Streets and Roads

The design and construction standards for streets and roadways should allow for pavements with a long service life and low required upkeep. When designing under these standards for longevity and ease of maintenance, the following factors are heavily considered in the process:

  • Street Classification and Traffic
  • Geometric Design
  • Subgrades and Subbases
  • Concrete Quality
  • Thickness Design
  • Jointing
  • Construction Specifications

Several ACPA publications also discuss the details of subgrades and subbases, jointing practices, and specifications in much greater detail:
