Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Bus Tour

CPCC-Plant-Site-web

Central Plains Cement Plant

OK/AR Chapter, ACPA conducted its annual fall Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Review Bus Tour September 27th. After reviewing several concrete pavements along I 35 and the Cimarron Turnpike (many miles of which were 30 -40 years old), participants were treated a tour of the ACPA member Central Plains Cement Company’s manufacturing plant in Tulsa. OK/AR Chapter board member Joe Bush, along with fellow CPCC employees Megan Dangel and Bob Sanders hosted the tour and provided a fantastic BBQ lunch. The group also made a stop at ACPA member Duit Construction’s ongoing project on US 266 and finished up with a review of several concrete pavement sections on US 75 and I 40 before returning to Oklahoma City.
