LCPS Facilities Operations Developing and Implementing New Initiative with WDP for Asphalt Pavement Repairs/Maintenance and Life Cycle Analysis
WDP executed three asphalt pavement assessments / evaluations, which included Middleburg Community Charter School, Aldie Elementary School, and Heritage High School, as part of a nearly 100 school inventory of existing asphalt pavement assessments and maintenance efforts estimated to occur over the next five years. The pavement assessments involved test borings, pavement cores, and lab testing and analysis (by Michelle Mittel, E.I.T., and Rob Niber, P.E.) to refine past Loudoun County Public School (LCPS) approaches to asphalt pavement repairs. WDP’s efforts saved considerable money while providing LCPS with the desired future pavement service life. During asphalt pavement milling/remedial stabilization repairs and asphalt resurfacing, WDP provided engineering oversight and field evaluations, including surface asphalt placement monitoring for proper thickness and compacted density. Additional staff involved during the construction phase included Claude Thomas (Engineering Technician) and Ed Brilhart (Field Operations Manager).
