ACPA participated in the ACC/AAAE Design and Construction Symposium, which was held Feb. 19 through 21 in Reno, NV. Gary Mitchell participated in and presented perspectives during one of five workshop sessions called, “Increasing Your Odds of Maximum Your Investments: Pavement Updates.” 

“We discussed various pavement attributes and the importance of building the pavement correctly from the outset,” Gary says, adding that his remarks focused on quality assurance and quality control.

The panel was moderated by Wayne Seiler of All About Pavements, Inc., an ACPA member. Other panelists included Adam Browning of S&ME; Shannon Holman of Orion and Associates; and Doug Johnson of the FAA’s headquarters office. The conference was attended by approximately 1,500 engineers, planners, and airport sponsor executives from around the country. The breakout session was attended by about 150 designers and airport engineers.
