Why Concrete Pavement

Concrete pavements are a great choice for highways, streets and airfields. They are economical, durable and safe! Please consider all the advantages of concrete the next time you plan a paving job and please enjoy the video below. Questions? Call us at 405 767 5100 or email bburwell@pavement.com.

Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference Update

In response to ongoing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully decided to cancel the Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference for 2020. Early on we were hopeful that it could be rescheduled for this fall, however, even as businesses try to re-establish somewhat normal operations, we feel group gatherings of 350-400 people are not a prudent activity in these times. For those of you who have already paid for sponsorships, exhibit space or registration, we will begin the process of refunding your payments this week. We fully anticipate being able to host a Spring conference in 2021 and hope to see everyone there!

Additionally, we are entertaining the idea of a concrete pavement award banquet for our award winners later in the year if we can work out the details of how to safely organize it where all CDC social distancing recommendations can be adhered to. We will keep our award winners updated as this develops.

Overlay Webinars Great Success

This week’s concrete overlay webinar, sponsored by OK/AR Chapter along with ACPA National and the Concrete Pavement Tech Center, was an overwhelming success with nearly 800 participants.

During this one-hour program, Eric Ferrebee from ACPA National described the design tools and methodologies used in developing overlay projects and Angela Folkestad of CO/WY ACPA shared those states’ concrete overlay experiences.
