Pavement preservation is more challenging today than ever before, and the program was prepared with that and other considerations in mind.

This year’s event will provide a glimpse of the future through an owner’s eyes, as well as a recent study of the long-term performance of rapid strength concrete slab repairs, and an investigation on how to use slurry for soil stabilization.
