NRMCA's celebration of the 100th anniversary of ready mixed concrete in the U.S. concludes its May offerings with the histories of two of the Association's newer Producer and Associate members - see below for their respective Web site links. This week's industry milestone: In February, 1914, the first National Concrete Road Conference was convened in Chicago. Organized as an academic conference, attendees discussed everything from expanding the use of concrete for roads to what types of aggregate should be used.
