ACPA to present Airport Pavement Design & Construction Workshop

Rosemont, Ill. — The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) will present a three-day national workshop on best practices used in the design, construction, and rehabilitation of concrete pavements used for airport applications. The workshop program offers technical presentations by subject matter experts with practical experience in the topic areas. Leading the discussions will be experts from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s Transportation System Center, the Headquarters office of the FAA, ACPA, and companies with direct involvement in FAA and USACE projects.

The workshop will be held July 25 through 27, at the Hilton Omaha in Omaha, Neb. The program will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (CDT) the first day and second days, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. the third day.

The workshop is intended for owners’ representatives/engineers, contractor personnel, and others with an interest in concrete pavement design, construction, and rehabilitation for airport applications.

This comprehensive training, led by ACPA’s Gary Mitchell and other leading subject matter experts, will cover airport pavement design, construction, and rehabilitation.

A popular element of ACPA’s airport pavement training program is open discussions about interpreting and applying airport concrete pavement specifications used by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) P–501 and Unified Facilities Guide Specification (UFGS) 32 13 11 specifications. This group discussion serves as a guide for interpreting, gaining a better understanding, and gaining practical insights about the specifications.

Participants will be presented a certificate of completion that may be used for company credit or up to 13.5 professional development hours.
