Conference Focuses on Highway and Airport Pavements
ACPA participated in the 2019 International Airfield and Highway Pavements Conference in Chicago this week.
Sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI), included a presentation by Jerry Voigt on ACPA’s VISION2040 initiative. The presentation provides a long-term view of technology-driven changes anticipated in the next 20 years, as well as projections on how the concrete pavement industry will both adapt to and drive innovation.
Eric Ferrebee presented on concrete pavement preservation and rehabilitation techniques and also did a poster presentation on PavementDesigner.org, the cement & concrete industry’s pavement thickness design platform. Eric also participated in the highway- and airfield-pavements committee meetings.
Two pre-conference workshops were held on Sunday. Peter Taylor and Gordon Smith from the CP Tech Center were among presenters in the PEM workshop. The second workshop, led by Jeffrey Gagnon of the FAA, covered the agency’s pavement evaluation software.
TDI supports the advancement of integrated transportation and development that is safe, secure, and sustainable.
