2017 Concrete Pavement Tour

The PennDOT/ACPA Pennsylvania Chapter Concrete Pavement Tour/Meeting took place on August 30-31 in Valley Forge.  Over 90 individuals representing the Department, the Turnpike, FHWA, industry and academia were able to visit three active paving projects on August 30 in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. 

We want to thank PennDOT District 6, PennDOT Central Office, the Turnpike, PACA, and the companies that allowed us to visit their projects and facilities, including J. D. Eckman, Castor Materials, James J. Anderson Construction Company, and James D. Morrisey Construction Company,  and the many individual who took time out of their busy schedules to participate on the tour.  We also appreciate the participation and dialogue that took place on August 31, where issues were discussed and deliberated by about 60 individuals, all with the goal of improving and enhancing the quality of concrete pavements in the Commonwealth.
