SWCPA Convenes Transportation Leaders and ACPA Friends at the NICC
This week, ACPA staff attended the 19th Annual Nevada Infrastructure Concrete Conference hosted by the Southwest Concrete Pavement Association and the California Nevada Cement Association. The conference took place over two days, with sessions in both Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada. Attendees included leadership and teams from the Nevada Department of Transportation, public officials, planners, engineers, consultants, contractors, and others involved in designing and constructing Nevada’s highways, bridges, waterways, transportation systems, and allied concrete infrastructure. After a one-year COVID hiatus where the conference was virtual, the 2021 conference returned to an in-person format. In total, more than 200 people attended the sessions and were treated to presentations ranging from the Future of Nevada Transportation & Infrastructure to the path to Sustainability in Concrete Infrastructure. Both Gary Mitchell and Laura O’Neill Kaumo attended the Las Vegas event where Larry Scofield hosted a presentation titled “Diamonds are a Highway’s Best Friend: Improving the sustainability of our highway pavements through diamond grinding.” Thanks to both Charles Stuart and Tom Tietz for including ACPA in the conference.
