Advertisment

Public
agencies and private companies alike want to make sure they get the best value
for their dollars, especially when budgets are tight. The asphalt industry has
solutions that ensure the best value for each and every paving project.

 

The 21st
Century Asphalt Pavements Conference brings together a day and a half of case
studies, roundtables, and research into pavement preservation and sustainable
pavements. Designed for paving professionals in the public and private sectors,
the conference will benefit construction managers, project superintendents,
inspectors, QC/QA technicians/managers, and others involved in the design,
construction, and maintenance processes. The technical conference will provide
participants with tools, best practices, and innovations they need to build the
pavements people will be driving on for the next century.

 

Conference
participants will learn how to incorporate sustainability into projects
economically using warm-mix asphalt (WMA), reclaimed asphalt pavements (RAP),
recycled asphalt shingles (RAS), thin overlays, and porous asphalt.
Presentations will also cover how to set specification limits, how to use
quality assurance, when and where to use modified binders, and how to construct
longitudinal joints to assure value and performance. Also part of the
conference is a session on Perpetual Pavements, the most cost-effective
pavements over the long term.
