Pavement Preservation. None of us want to attempt to drive on roads like the one in the photo above, to help prevent that, in , the City of Duluth adopted a Pavement Preservation and Management Plan to better manage our road system. This program will emphasize the importance of early intervention through the adoption of proactive maintenance strategies. Simply resurfacing a street anymore is not the most cost efficient or best method for long term preservation of that roadway. We must switch our mindset from repairing the worst roads first, which depletes budgets quickly. In addition, a road already in the poor category will cost little more to rehabilitate in a few years and the method of rehab will not change , but will allow us to maintain more good and fair streets, affecting more miles of street per dollar.

For most of the 20th century, the same materials—portland cement, aggregate, and water—were used in pavement concrete with only minor refinements. It was a fairly forgiving system that allowed some flexibility in material quality, construction practices, and other variables without sacrificing pavement performance. For generations, the industry had enjoyed the luxury of keeping traffic off new concrete pavements for several days even weeks while the concrete developed its design strength. By the end of the 20th century, however, the following changes had turned the process of concrete paving on end:. It was no longer possible for the concrete pavement community to continue doing business as usual, while meeting the growing highway construction and rehabilitation demands. The CP Road Map gave the concrete pavement community the opportunity to proactively reinvent itself through research and technology transfer. This partnership culminated in in the publication of an initial Executive summary , Volume I: Background and summary , and Volume II: Research tracks. The CP Road Map was grounded from the beginning in acknowledgment that no single organization had the funds, expertise, or political capital to focus all research being done across the concrete pavement community.

Initially conceived as a recording project, the band at first avoided press or live performances, while attracting considerable underground attention with their early releases. Gradually evolving into a more polished band, Pavement recorded five full-length albums and nine EPs over the course of their decade-long career, though they disbanded with some acrimony in as the members moved on to other projects.

Rather than signing with a major label as many of their s forebears had done, they remained signed to independent labels throughout their career and have often been described as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the American underground in the '90s. Some prominent music critics, such as Robert Christgau and Stephen Thomas Erlewine , called them the best band of the s. They were recorded at Louder Than You Think, the home studio of Stockton local and former hippie Gary Young who also played drums on the recordings.
