Approximately half of all infrastructure dollars are invested in pavements, and more than half of that investment is in overlays. By enhancing overlay performance, State and local highway agencies can maximize this investment and help ensure safer, longer-lasting roadways for the traveling public.
Many of the pavements in the Nation’s highway system have reached or are approaching the end of their design life. These roadways still carry daily traffic that often far exceeds their initial design criteria. Overlays are now available for both asphalt and concrete pavements that enable agencies to provide long-life performance under a wide range of traffic, environmental, and existing pavement conditions.

Sam Tyson is a concrete pavement engineer with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in the Office of Preconstruction, Construction, and Pavements in Washington, DC. He is a registered professional engineer in the District of Columbia, and a graduate of the University of Virginia where he earned both Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Science degrees in civil engineering. Sam served on active duty in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with tours in the Mobile, Alabama District and Vietnam. Sam manages FHWA’s program to advance best practices for construction, rapid repair, and rehabilitation of concrete pavements. He works with state highway agencies to implement innovative technology. Currently, Sam is leading FHWA’s effort to increase the use of concrete overlays to provide long-life performance of both existing asphalt and existing concrete pavement. This effort is one of seven technologies included in FHWA’s Every Day Counts (EDC-6) program.
