Pavement preservation can be achieved in several ways, one of which is sealing cracks.

The presenters will introduce key definitions and processes for crack sealing. They will also recommend project selection methods and identify key steps in the crack seal process. The webinar will also discuss what an inspector should look for to get a quality job, and determine how crack sealing may fit into an agency’s preservation program.
