TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-R26-RR-1: Preservation Approaches for High-Traffic-Volume Roadways documents the state of the practice of preservation treatment on asphalt and concrete pavements. The report focuses on treatments suitable for application on high-traffic-volume roadways but also discusses current practices for low-volume roadways.

The same project that produced SHRP 2 Report S2-R26-RR-1 also produced SHRP 2 Report S2-R26-RR-2: Guidelines for the Preservation of High-Traffic-Volume Roadways. The report provides suggested guidelines for the application of preservation treatments on high-traffic-volume roadways and considers traffic volume, pavement condition, work-zone requirements, environmental conditions, and expected performance.

An e-book version of this report is available for purchase at Google, iTunes, and Amazon.
