The City of Garland (pop. 228,000), delivers concrete streets to its residents in an unconventional way that saves money, time, and improves response to its residents and businesses. Steve Oliver, PE, Garland's Director of Streets, presented Garland's unique street construction approach at the American Concrete Institute's recent Dallas Spring Meeting. His presentation was made during the "Symposium on Integrated Cement-Based Pavement Systems" held on March 19th at the convention.
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.
