Taking Concrete Pavement to the Next Level…

2020 Indiana Concrete Pavement Workshop Draws 180

Highway engineers, inspectors, contractors, and suppliers gathered February 18 in Indianapolis for the 2020 Indiana Concrete Pavement Workshop and annual awards presentation. Speakers from INDOT, FHWA, and the concrete paving industry provided insights on the Indiana Transportation Team initiative toward better process and communication. Technical session addressed optimized concrete mixes, innovation in testing, pavement restoration, and the use of thin concrete overlays as a preservation treatment for appropriate segments of state and local road networks.

Awards recognizing work at Grissom Air Reserve Base, I-74, I-70, I-865, Ryan Rd. in Allen Co., Eastide Parkway in Gas City, Kessler Blvd. and 38th St. in Indianapolis, US 40 in Richmond, and SR 37 in Lawrence Co. were presented as well.
