Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Over 220 attendees gathered for the opening session of the South Dakota Ready Mix Concrete Association (SDRMCA) convention held earlier this month. During the morning session, NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen of the Pave Ahead team spoke to the group about the recently released Guide to Concrete Trails, funded by the RMC Research & Education Foundation. Hansen spoke on the contents of the guide and how using the information will better position the concrete construction industry to take advantage of the emerging recreational trail industry.

Hansen’s presentation also recognized South Dakota's award winning Sioux River Red Rock Trail project and BX Civil and Construction project manager AliceAnn Krantz. Krantz is on record saying “that with the challenging site conditions, concrete was the only material to build this trail.”

Even though Hansen made the audience aware of the free PDF download of the Guide to Concrete Trails, 65 people requested printed copies from SDRMCA Executive Director Jody Titze.
