TxDOT/CCT Concrete Conference Features Innovation, Durability


The 8th TxDOT CCT Concrete Conference promises to be a milestone educational and networking event for state and local transportation agency personnel, consulting engineers, contractors, and other construction professionals.  It will be held September 29-30th at the University of Texas' JJ Pickle Commons Learning Center in Austin, with a golf tournament and other events on September 28th.  

The Conference, with the theme of "Fostering Innovation," has been expanded to include sessions on highway paving, streets and local roads, and bridges.  Highlights include keynote presentations on September 29th by TxDOT's Deputy Executive Director John Barton, PE, and Greg Punski, PE, FHWA's Texas Division District B Engineer.  Also that day, an expert panel on Energy Sector Pavement Solutions will explore the challenge of rebuilding state and local roads in West and South Texas.  

The Keynote Technical Session on September 30th will feature "Keys to Concrete Durability," presented by internationally-recognized professors Dr. Kevin Folliard, PE, University of Texas at Austin, and Dr. Michael Thomas, P.Eng., University of New Brunswick.  These researchers have participated in some of the seminal concrete durability innovations of the last two decades.

Conference registration includes meals/snacks, a networking reception, and exhibitor/equipment displays.  PDH certificates will be available to attendees, and a thumb drive with all presentations and other resources will be distributed at the event.

The conference is organized by TxDOT and the Cement Council of Texas (CCT), with cooperation from the Texas Concrete Pavement Association (TCPA), the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI), the Texas Aggregates and Concrete Association (TACA), and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA).  Sponsors include TCPA (Platinum); Capitol Aggregates, Martin Marietta Materials, and Airplaco Equipment, and CRSI (Gold); and Waste Crete Systems (Silver).  (Click here for more info on sponsorhip/exhibiting.)
