2022 Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference

City of Stillwater Engineer, Monty Karns, discussing the details of a recent concrete overlay of one of the Stillwater’s intersections.

The 2022 Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference has concluded and by all measures was a huge success with over three hundred people in attendance. Secretary of Transportation, Tim Gatz, kicked off the meeting with updates on recent federal funding authorization for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s eight year plan and the commencement of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority’s Access Oklahoma program.

Although stormy weather prevented her from being there in person, ACPA’s new President & CEO, Laura Kaumo-O’Neil, was introduced to the crowd by an online appearance outlining ACPA’s vision for the future.

Many thanks to our exhibitors and sponsors for helping us make this event a success.
