San Antonio's Belknap Place is over a century old, and still going strong. Last May, it was commemorated with a Texas State Historical Marker, and in December the American Concrete Pavement Association presented its Longevity Award to the City for Belknap Place. As President Trump contemplates a $1 trillion infrastructure investment, and the ASCE discusses America's overall D+ in its 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, Belknap Place stands as a monument to wise public investment in a resilient technology.

The Cementx Pavement Blog seeks to make pavement owners, engineers and contractors smarter about selecting, designing, constructing and maintaining pavements. New blog postings began February 1, 2017; however, we carried over pavement-related blog postings from our older blog, the "Texas Cement and Concrete Blog," which ran until December 2016.
