Environmental Sustainability, Resiliency of Preservation to Drive
Editorial Content in 2023

With the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 (IIJA) now in effect, there’s a new emphasis nationally on the environmental sustainability and resiliency of pavement preservation.

That’s why the environmental benefits and user reliability of preserved pavements will be a prime editorial theme of Pavement Preservation Journal in 2023. Supporters of FP2 and stakeholders in the pavement preservation industry will contribute articles stressing the unique environmental benefits and resiliency of pavement preservation. This will be in addition to our every-issue lineup of field application case histories, interpretive technical papers, news about the industry, tech transfer events and our quarterly departments. 

In every issue:

  • NCAT/MnROAD Preservation Study
  • D.C. Update
  • RoadResource.org Update
  • Profiles in Preservation
  • Supporter Showcase

We will look at themes such as how some organizations are quantitatively measuring the sustainability and eco-efficiency of preservation treatments; how preservation treatments lower emissions; how carbon capture can take place with preservation treatments; how to use online calculators such as RoadResource.org to measure the environmental savings and greenhouse gas reductions between proposed preservation treatments and construction alternatives; how materials and equipment manufacturers are reducing their carbon footprints and documenting it through Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs); and how the advent of bio-based materials complements conventional preservation products and add to their environmental sustainability and resiliency.

You can be a part of our exciting editorial program for 2023 by participating editorially and by supporting Pavement Preservation Journal with your advertising!

Spring 2023

For the environmental focus in our first quarterly issue we will have two articles, Road Use Contributions to Energy Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Two Flexible Pavement Maintenance Strategies, and Design of Micro Surfacing and Chip Seal Mixes with RAP for Local Roadway Application. We’ll introduce the new FP2 president through 2024 with a bio, and follow up with a Q&A interview stressing the new president’s priorities and goals for his or her term. There will be a detailed look at FP2’s highest honor, the James B. Sorenson Award for Excellence in Pavement Preservation, winner being Polk County, Fla. We will have an in-depth overview of the topics/meeting tracks of September’s National Pavement Preservation Conference 2023 (NPPC23). And we will report on the impact of underinvestment in rural/local roads from new study from The Road Information Program.
