Pavement Preservation Webinars Begin

The webinar team has added a fourth webinar to the concrete pavement preservation series.

Here’s a preview of upcoming webinars:

  • June 9th–Concrete Pavement Preservation II: Concrete pavement evaluation and strategy selection with case studies. Presenters: Steve Tritsch (CP Tech Center) and John Donahue (MO DOT).
  • June 16th–Concrete Pavement Preservation III: Concrete pavement preservation treatment construction with in field examples, including case studies. Presenters: John Roberts (IGGA) and Randy Everett (AZ DOT).
  • (New) June 23rd–Concrete Pavement Preservation IV: Concrete Pavement Management and Preservation performance and resources. Presenter: Dr. Mike Darter, Applied Research Associates, Inc. (and Emeritus Professor, University of Illinois).

The first webinar in this series was held yesterday and drew about 655 participants. Larry Scofield and Angela Folkestad presented on concrete pavement management and preservation. The webinar covered concrete pavement management and preservation including actual examples and case studies.

The pavement preservation series follows the successful 5-part series on concrete overlays and two-part series on ADA guidelines in design & construction.  In all, the eight webinars (11 sessions plus video replays) presented thus far have reached more than 5,500 agencies/owners, consultants, and industry officials.

After the June 23 session, we will shift to a summer schedule that will be once per month until November. More details will be provided soon.

The webinars are the result of the collaborative efforts of ACPA, the CP Tech Center, IGGA, and the ACPA chapter network.

Webinar Eclipses Previous Record

The fifth webinar in the five-part concrete overlay series yesterday again drew a record number of participants. Breaking last week’s record, this and the other four webinars in the series saw a total of more than 3,500 participants.

Building on the momentum, the CPTech Center, with support from ACPA national staff, chapters, and allies, has expanded the webinar series again. As reported in ACPA TODAY last week, the webinar program is expanding with webinars covering ADA considerations in project design and construction. Yesterday, another series was added, a two-part series covering pavement preservation and featuring presentations by John Roberts and other experts.

ACPA Provides Tech Training to Florida Engineers

ACPA this week presented two separate Concrete Pavement Preservation workshops in Florida. The one-day workshops were held in Davie and Orlando on November 4 and 5, respectively.

Working with the Florida Chapter-ACPA, Eric Ferrebee, ACPA Technical Service Director, and Mark Snyder, President of Pavement Engineering and Research Consultants, LLC, presented information on: proper timing of concrete pavement preservation; pavement evaluation; and full- and partial-depth repair. 

They also discussed dowel bar retrofit and cross-stitching; joint and crack sealing; diamond grinding and grooving; concrete overlays; and how to choose appropriate preservation strategies.

 

FHWA Offers Pavement Restoration Checklists

In the resource spotlight this week is the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center’s (CP Tech Center’s) series of updated and new pavement preservation  checklist.

Originally developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 2002, the preservation checklists provide excellent information on innovative pavement preservation techniques. Designed to guide state and local highway preservation/maintenance and inspection staff, the checklists provide useful information to contractors and others with an interest in concrete pavement preservation, repair, and restoration. 

Checklist topics include the following: 

• Joint and Crack Sealing • Full-Depth Repair
• Diamond Grinding • Cross-Stitching
• Dowel-Bar Retrofit • Longitudinal Diamond Grooving
• Partial-Depth Repair  

 

The complete list of 2019 and 2002 checklists may be found on FHWA’s pavement preservation resource website. The CP Tech Center also includes a link to the resources on its curated online library of pavement preservation resources.
