Résumé de conférence
This Guide was developed to identify current Canadian agency practices with respect to pothole repair and outline best practices from both Canadian and international agencies. Recommendations are provided for appropriate temporary and long-term patching strategies for spring, summer and winter and for evaluating and selecting appropriate patching products that will lead to the improved performance of chip seal and asphalt surfaced roadways for Canadian climate conditions. The best way to treat a pothole is prevent it from happening in the first place. Pothole management should include an assessment of the type and timing of pavement maintenance, preservation and rehabilitation treatments through use of the agency’s pavement construction history and pavement management data.The Guide also provides recommended procedures for the evaluation of new patching products and their compatibility with native road surfaces.
