Streets and Local Roads Move Forward in Arkansas

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA South Central Senior National Resource Director Vance Pool reports that streets and local roads (SLR) promotion efforts are moving forward in Arkansas. Jim Hall of Martin Marietta, representing the Arkansas Ready Mixed Concrete Assocation (ARMCA), used a longstanding connection to drive concrete streets and local roads. This strategy was discussed at the first ARMCA SLR training class, Pool said.

Hall scheduled the meeting so that Pool could join him as technical support. While in the process of positioning concrete streets, Hall was made aware of a small parking lot that local county officials were planning on building with asphalt. Not anymore - Hall flipped it to concrete, Pool said. Plans are to conduct a seminar prior to construction with the government officials and their consultants.

"I feel really good about the direction things are moving in Arkansas," Pool said. "ARMCA members are driving the grassroots level calls and it is just a matter of time until they see even larger success."
