NRMCA Helps Ensure Concrete is Represented in Colorado City's Construction Specifications
NRMCA Vice President, Local Paving, Don A. Clem recently teamed with Jamie Johnson, a pavement engineer with the Colorado/Wyoming chapter of the American Concrete Pavement Association, to discuss with engineers from Aurora, CO, the city's newly adopted roadway design and construction specifications. The specifications included provisions which required both new streets and intersections to be constructed with asphalt pavement. The engineers indicated that the provisions were unintended and agreed to issue an errata removing these requirements, allowing concrete pavement to be specified in the city.
NRMCA and ACPA CO/ WY also offered to assist Aurora city officials with some concrete pavement design issues, construction details and assistance on a large upcoming concrete repair project. Other upcoming roadway projects where concrete pavement might be a good option were also discussed. With a population of over 350,000, Aurora is the third largest city in Colorado, and is expected to continue to grow.
