Key Points

Pavements are designed, constructed, and maintained to provide adequate support for loads imposed by traffic, and to provide a uniformly firm, stable, smooth, all-weather surface. To achieve these objectives, the subgrade, base, underdrainage and pavement must function together properly so that the pavement will not fail under the predicted traffic loads.
