Approximately 370 representatives from the transportation departments of the seven-state Mid-Atlantic region attended the annual The Mid-Atlantic Quality Assurance Workshop (QAW) in Williamsburg, VA, last week, according to Ray Seipp, President of the ACPA Mid-Atlantic Chapter.

Jim Mack, Director of Infrastructure – Market Development at CEMEX (and 2019 Chairman of the ACPA Board of Directors) presented a program on concrete pavement resiliency.

The QAW is a three-day workshop held every year since 1967. The event is dedicated to highway materials and quality control/assurance of highway materials. 

The workshop includes two main sessions covering a wide range of highway topics as well as five all day breakout sessions, devoted to the latest information on highway materials in the areas of asphalt, concrete, metals, maintenance, soils and aggregates. 

Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia make up the Mid-Atlantic QAW area. The next QAW is scheduled for February 21 in New Jersey.
