Abstract: As pavements wear, they lose some of their skid resistance. This article discusses some of the leading options for restoring a pavement's skid resistance. The possibilities for restoring skid resistance include sprinkle treatment, portland cement concrete overlays, polymer overlays, milling to texture the old pavement, applying emulsified slurry seals, grooving existing pavements, and texturing freshly pouted PCC pavements with a tining machine. The authors discuss the pros and cons of each method.
