Much like people, every road, every highway, has its own personality...its own character

Aesthetic Pavement Treatments

Aesthetic Pavement is a term used to describe paving material that would satisfy the criteria of being aesthetically pleasing and have acceptable engineering properties for anticipated traffic loading. Numerous tests are conducted on selected aggregates to achieve the “look” required for a particular landscape design. The look may have historical significance or it may be purely aesthetic.

The Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division continues to explore varied uses of synthetic binders, gravel aggregates, paving methods and other approaches, to further the options available to our client partners for Context Sensitive Pavements. We are excited to share our recent accomplishments in this area on some projects of tremendous historical value.
