Pavement Investigation, Engineering and Design


From heavily traveled urban interstate highways to city streets and county roads or low volume site access, AET's Pavements Group is a leading provider of pavement surfacing and subsurface investigations, pavement materials engineering and pavement design for new construction, rehabilitation and maintenance.

We provide extensive knowledge in all aspects of the construction, resurfacing and rehabilitation of concrete, bituminous and gravel surfaced pavements. We are experts in pavement rehabilitation designs that include cold-in-place recycling and stabilized full-depth reclamation using a variety of stabilizing materials (asphalt emulsion, foamed asphalt, cement, fly ash). We excel at the utilization of soil stabilization, using a variety of subgrade modification techniques in areas where wet or highly plastic soils are encountered.

AET also excels in bituminous and concrete mix designs for both temporary and permanent pavements that will be exposed to heavy loads and extreme environmental conditions. Our experience is highly regarded among state and county transportation and highway departments, civil design consulting engineers as well as highway and heavy construction contractors and private developers. Our goal is to help clients construct and operate durable and safe pavements and transportation infrastructure while reducing costly maintenance and repair.

Our typical concrete pavement testing and materials engineering services include but are not limited to:

  • Cold-in-Place Recycling laboratory and field testing
  • Falling Weight Deflectometer testing and analysis (FWD)
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) testing and analysis
  • High speed profilograph testing
