Jobs in the Asphalt Pavement Industry


Asphalt is an economical building material. It is less expensive, not just in actual cost, but also in terms of the time it takes to complete construction projects and life cycle costs. It is adaptable in that asphalt is a reliable weather resistance material and can be designed for low and high traffic conditions. It can withstand the harshest of weather and the heaviest of semi-trailers. Asphalt can be designed to fit a specific purpose.

Asphalt pavements are and continue to be America’s pavement of choice.

Today’s current national and local economic conditions – combining reduced funding with high infrastructure needs – have elevated the importance of prudent spending. Decision makers exercising good stewardship practices can easily justify their decisions and choices to their constituents.

Good stewardship practices include a detailed, logical, and documented pavement type selection process that includes a life-cycle cost analysis as a key component.
