Concrete Overlay Workshops Coming Soon!

PennDOT has arranged for two Concrete Overlay Workshops to be presented on June 11 (at the State Materials Lab) in Harrisburg and one on June 13 (at the District 12 Office) in Uniontown.  These are being presented by FHWA under the Every-Day Counts (EDC) initiative by Bob Conway (FHWA) and Jerry Voigt (One Square Pavement Consulting).  There is no cost to attend either session, but you must register with PennDOT to attend. Slots are on a first-come-first-served basis.  Click the link below for the workshop you wish to attend:
