Finalize Plans for the Promoters’ Forum

ACPA, NRMCA and PCA’s  2019 Promoters’ Forum is only a few weeks away.   The associations are reminding those interested in the event to book hotel rooms by August  5 to secure the special pricing.

The Promoters’ Forum is a two-day forum aimed at providing industry promoters with best practices, the latest promotion techniques, and new (and existing) resources from national associations representing concrete and cementitious-material solutions.  The event provides regional, state and other local promoters with a unique networking experience, and a wealth of useful information from the associations.

The three Association hosts, along with national sponsors (ASCC, CRSI and NCMA) encourage promoters from member companies and associations to participate in this industry-wide event to network with colleagues and draw on resources from the concrete and cement industry. 

The forum will be held August 28-29, 2019 at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel, located at 5300 N. River Road in Rosemont, IL.  The registration fee is $150.  Please click here for more information or to register for the event. Registration through the PCA website is simple and requires only basic information (contact information, a username, and a password) to enable the use of the Aptify registration site.

Snapshot: Diamond-Grinding in Phoenix

Larry Scofield, ACPA/IGGA, notes the Phoenix freeway system was overlaid with a 1 in.-thick asphalt-rubber friction course (ARFC) years ago. 

The ARFC surface is now raveling and creating damage to vehicle windshields and paint, so the Arizona DOT is considering other options. As a result, a conventional diamond ground section and a Next Generation Concrete Surface test section were constructed on SR101. The work was done by the Penhall Company, an ACPA and IGGA member. 

Training Event Focuses on Pavement Preservation

Eric Ferrebee, ACPA Technical Service Director, and Steve Tritsch, Associate Director of the CP Tech Center, represented the concrete pavement industry at the Pavement Preservation Summit in Puerto Rico this week. Sponsored by the FHWA, the program began with remarks by officials from the FHWA, as well as local agency and industry officials.

The first day of the two-day event included concrete and asphalt tracks. Eric and Steve participated as presenters in three concrete-related tracks, with Eric covering diamond grinding and grooving; load-transfer restoration and cross stitching; and partial-depth concrete pavement repairs.  Steve covered joint resealing and crack sealing; full-depth concrete pavement repairs; and slab replacement. The summit, held at the College of Engineers and Surveyors of Puerto Rico in Hato Rey, also included other presentations on pavement preservation, specifications and quality assurance.
