CP Tech Center mentioned in new
The Accelerated Implementation and Deployment of Pavement Technologies 2016-2017 Annual Report to Congress from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration documents the work of the AID-PT program and mentions engineered concrete mixtures, recycled concrete aggregates, and concrete overlays. The CP Tech Center has been actively involved in national efforts to advance these technologies and Center staff members are quoted and referenced in the report.
Among those quoted is Peter Taylor, who is part of a task force that is developing the new guidelines to improve the abilities of the nation’s pavements to withstand challenging conditions. Said Peter, “At the heart of the specification is making sure that we are measuring the right things. We found that beyond concrete strength, most of the critical factors that we need for performance are durability related, and typically not captured in existing specifications.”
