A meeting held last month with workers from the city of Santa Rosa's, CA, and Sonoma County's public works departments was very timely, reports NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Jon Hansen. "Timely in the sense that they are feeling the pressure from unstable asphalt prices and are looking for sustainable, longer lasting street paving," he said.

The city and county attendees requested additional details on construction and budget estimates for switching some existing projects from asphalt to concrete. The City of Santa Rosa was particularly interested in using the NRMCA Streets and Local Roads Design Assistance Program to help get it started, Hansen said. Paulette Salisbury with the California Nevada Cement Association arranged the meeting as a continuation of the streets and local roads seminars in which Hansen participated in the Bay Area in March; she is spearheading the followup with the city and county.
