Utility Cut Restoration Author(s): Halpenny, David J. Origin: Illinois Date: September, 1987 Categories: Performance Key Words:
Summary: The design life of a city street is dependent on the pavement thickness design and the number and weight of loads it receives while it is in service. One aspect that is not accounted for in pavement design is the effect of utility cuts on pavement life. Utility cut repairs can drastically shorten the service life if they are not constructed properly, however, a proper restoration will have no effect on either the design life or rideability of the pavement.
