Performance Under Pressure: Heavy Duty Pavements – Production & Placement Best Management Practices, QC, and Lessons Learned from Project Experience

Friday, June 29, 2018
Date: Thursday, August 16, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speakers: Brett Stanton, P.E. – Manager of Strategy and Innovation - Superior Bowen Asphalt Co. and Graham Hurley, P.E. – Project Engineer - Advanced Materials Services (AMS)

Specialized pavement solutions to provide the performance needed for heavy duty pavements can lead to slightly increased material costs. Quality and consistency are always important, but when pavement costs increase and the demands on those pavements’ performance are greater, a focus on BMPs for both production and placement is key to meeting customer needs.   The speakers will discuss:
  • Density
  • Challenges
  • Quality
  • Performance
