ACPA endorsed a bill recently introduced in the Maryland House of Delegates that would direct the state’s DOT to “analyze alternatives to the use of asphalt as roadway surface materials that are used in other states and countries.”
A letter to the sponsor of the bill, Delegate C.T. Wilson, expresses ACPA’s strong support House Bill 1013, which would require the state DOT to “conduct a study and make certain recommendations on roadway surface materials.” The letter also offers assistance to support the study, as well as to provide “information that supports the ways pavement material analysis and comparison benefits taxpayers, agencies, and the traveling public.”
The letter is one of the latest examples of ACPA’s ConcreteCOMPETES program, which provides direct support to ACPA-affiliated chapters and members, as well as transportation agencies/owners. The program is a top priority for ACPA Chairman Jim Mack (CEMEX) and was first initiated by 2018 Chairman Chuck Niederriter (Golden Triangle Construction). Click here to see the letter.
