NHI Announces Concrete Pavement Preservation Courses

For a limited time, the National Highway Institute (NHI) is offering a free, five-part distance learning program, “Constructing Quality PCC Pavement Preservation Treatments.” The comprehensive program was developed under the auspices of the NHI through a cooperative agreement between the FHWA and the CP Tech Center. 

ACPA and IGGA were instrumental in providing content for the courses, and we invested significant time and resources, providing information, images, and other support for the project. The online courses include the following topics:

  • How to Construct Durable Full-Depth Repairs in Concrete Pavements (FHWA-NHI-134207A)
  • How to Construct Durable Partial-Depth Repairs in Concrete Pavements (FHWA-NHI-134207B)
  • Proper Diamond Grinding Techniques for Pavement Preservation (FHWA-NHI-134207C)
  • Proper Construction Techniques for Dowel Bar Retrofit (DBR) and Cross-Stitching (FHWA-NHI-134207D)
  • Proper Joint Sealing Techniques for Pavement Preservation (FHWA-NHI-134207E)

The program provides a total of 13.5 hours of online learning of pavement preservation methods and technologies. Courses are also available in English and Spanish. Click here to view the course selection and register.

ACPA Participates in National Academies’ Focus Group

NationalAcademies-logo

ACPA’s Leif Wathne was one of about a dozen officials to participate in a focus group discussion organized recently by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine.* 

The focus group, one of several planned, brought together experts representing each of the three disciplines of science, engineering, and medicine for discussions about the Academies’ programs, their efficacy and general direction, and ways to improve the overall research process.  

“It was an honor to participate in the panel discussion,” Wathne said, adding, “It is also an important obligation, as these focus groups can help shape the Academies and the work they do for many years to come.” 

Wathne said in the surface transportation area, most of the top tier highway research is conducted under the auspices of the Transportation Research Board (TRB), one of seven program units of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.  Among its many roles and responsibilities, TRB manages a number of research programs.  Among the programs that most impact ACPA members are the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, Airport Cooperative Research Program, and the second Strategic Highway Research Program, or SHRP 2.
