AbstractPreventive maintenance, like the proverbial stitch-in-time, has an instinctive appeal to people working with infrastructure. That appeal, in part, accounts for the success of a recent primer on preventative maintenance for municipal roads, says Mike Sheflin, who chairs the technical committee on municipal roads and sidewalks for the National Guide to Sustainable Municipal Infrastructure (InfraGuide). The primer, released just 18 months ago, was the first in InfraGuide's growing collection of best practice reports on road infrastructure. Another six documents ranging from road drainage to crack sealing in asphalt pavements have since been released. ?While there has been good interest in all our best practices, our most successful roads document to date is still our first -- Timely Preventive Maintenance for Municipal Roads,? says Nancy Schepers, InfraGuide project director.
