NRMCA Joins North Dakota Engineer in Promoting Concrete in Fargo
NRMCA Senior Director, Local Paving, Ken Justice and Dave Sethre, marketing director of the North Dakota Ready Mixed Concrete Association, recently met with Fargo, ND, engineer Tom Knakmuhs, PE, to discuss the city’s pavement rehabilitation program. The city reconstructs or rehabilitates an average of 15 road miles annually, with approximately 40% being concrete. It primarily uses concrete on the heavily traveled roadways as well as alleyways. All the design work is done in-house, so city officials are anxious to keep up with the latest trends in concrete design and construction, Justice reports.
Fargo has requested seminars in concrete pavement design, fiber reinforcement in lieu of steel, and other pertinent topics. Sethre will be coordinating the seminars in the next few months, with assistance from the NRMCA.
