This newly released work is a comprehensive study of pavement repair materials and methods. It
examines maintenance treatments on 370 roads in Greenville County, S.C., in the 1997-98 maintenance year.
The work is called The Study of Pavement Maintenance Techniques Used on Greenville County Maintained Roads. Released in June 2005, it was performed by C. Joel Sprague, Senior Engineer for Texas Research Institute, Austin, Texas. This exhaustive study compares the cost-effectiveness and performance of four maintenance treatments:

• Patching followed by paving fabric and an overlay
• Paving fabric and an overlay
