Arkansas Making Progress on Streets and Local Roads Promotion Efforts

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Arkansas Ready Mixed Concrete Association (ARMCA) is making progress showing the cost savings and environmental benefits of concrete pavements in streets and local roads (SLR). During a recent presentation held with numerous city and county officials, many municipalities recognized concrete’s value. A parking lot had been flipped on a prior call and now a road appears in the works.

"NRMCA has been supporting ARMCA’s efforts in partnership with the ACPA OK/AR Chapter and PCA’s South-Central region teams," said NRMCA South Central Senior National Resource Director Vance Pool. "To see success so rapidly only confirms that oil pricing has changed the game for 2012. On both the parking lot and street fronts, concrete is winning on first cost. We all have to get the word out to contractors and owners about the new pricing advantages concrete brings. The construction season is upon us and the more people who hear the message, the more pavements will be concrete."

Having presented to city and county officials earlier in the week, Pool also spoke on SLR at the ARMCA convention last week, training larger audiences how to go after that market and stressing the Design Assistance Program for parking lots which is underutilized in most states.
