On March 29, 2017 we hosted a pavement seminar for local Westchester County and Putnam County Highway Superintendents with the help of presenters Bruce Barkevich of New York Construction Materials Association, Patrick Keirnan of Advanced Testing and Thomas Baird of Barton & Loguidice. We had a great turn out and were able to update everyone on the most current asphalt products and best practice procedures.
We covered topics such as Warm Mix, Superpave, testing procedures, and porous pavement during the presentation at the Mt. Kisco Holiday Inn. A lot of great questions were asked and Municipal personnel got a lot of insight on the technical side of the materials and procedures. Our goal was to help bridge the science of materials and field placement practices. The end result was we were able bridge the gap helping municipalities create better roads with extended service life.
