Pavement Engineering

As a core service area since the company’s inception, AID has performed Pavement Evaluation and Design services on thousands of miles of roadways as well as numerous airfields in the northeast region and NY/NJ metropolitan areas.

Addressing this important transportation asset, AID strives to provide scientific yet practical solutions for maintaining our aging infrastructure in a “state of good repair”. Servicing state, county, municipal, and toll authority agencies, AID offers the latest in cutting edge condition assessment and design (AASHTO Pavement-ME in addition to the 1993 AASHTO Guide) through use of state-of-the-art Non-Destructive Testing technologies (LCMS, GPR, FWD, and Inertial Profiler), ground truth testing (coring, augering, and DCP), and laboratory testing of materials. Our pavement design team employs techniques and tools to develop engineered solutions that optimize upfront and life-cycle costs, design life, constructability, traffic, environmental, and utility impacts, and sustainability.
