Utilization of a pavement interlayer geotextile during pavement resurfacing

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Report Card for America’s Infrastructure gave a grade of D to America’s Roads. “Over 42% of Americas roads are congested costing the economy an estimated $101 billion in wasted time and fuel annually.” It is estimated that over $170 billion needs to be spent annually just to maintain America’s roads and bridges (ASCE Infrastructure Report Card). The 2015 Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015 provides only $46 billion per year. These kinds of budget deficits require innovative solutions to provide more efficient and sustainable road system solutions.
