Oklahoma Moves Forward on Streets and Local Roads Efforts

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Oklahoma is no stranger to streets and local roads (SLR) promotion with significant progress having been made in a number of cities, reports NRMCA South Central Senior National Resource Director Vance Pool. Prior work by Oklahoma Ready Mixed Concrete Association (ORMCA) members Michael Young of the Portland Cement Association South central region and Brent Burwell of the American Concrete Pavement Association have won numerous projects over the years.

Many streets in Oklahoma City have been paved recently with concrete, Pool said. I-40 has seen many portions built or currently under construction with continuously reinforced, smooth riding concrete. A recent survey of ORMCA members was aligned with national pavement promotion efforts. Put all these together and the future looks bright for concrete pavements in Oklahoma, Pool added. ORMCA Executive Director Jack Petrakis is leading the team forward on SLR promotion. At the ORMCA winter convention, Brent Burwell spoke on overlays while Pool spoke on SLR.
