Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA Senior Director of Pavement Structures Brian Killingsworth, P.E., attended the American Public Works Association's (APWA) International Public Works Congress & Exposition held late last month in Chicago. The conference included numerous technical and professional development sessions as well as an extensive gathering of exhibitors that showcased the latest products, services and technologies specific to public works. Two of the educational sessions focused on the use of pervious concrete and roller compacted concrete (RCC) in municipal settings and were well attended by conference attendees.

In the first session, Freeman Anthony, P.E., project engineer with the city of Bellingham, WA, discussed how the city used pervious concrete for solving not only stormwater challenges, but also saving maintenance dollars over the long term. In the RCC session, Theron Tobolski of NRMCA Producer member Prairie Material shared how RCC pavement has been used in unique ways in both heavy duty and municipal applications in the upper Midwest. He also spoke about utilizing ribbon mixers for production of RCC and the quality benefits of using these mixers in the production process.

Killingsworth was present at the conference and spoke with many public works officials about the use of concrete in street and road applications. He also informed them about NRMCA’s Design Assistance Program. NRMCA will continue to seek these decision makers and educate them about concrete’s value proposition from both an environmental and economic perspective.
