Is your knowledge up to date on how to design, construct and maintain concrete pavements? Do you know current best practices for stabilizing base materials and soils with cement? Have you considered roller-compacted concrete for a street or industrial site, but don't know how to design or specify it? Are you giving your clients--public agencies, facility owners, the traveling public--the best performing pavements at the lowest cost? If these or similar questions are on your mind, then the Cementx Pavement Blog is for you. Also, you can register for updates and a free giveaway.
The Cement Council of Texas has redesigned it's website for 2017. You can still find us at www.cementx.org but the site is now is easier to read and navigate, as well as being mobile and tablet friendly. We want to make this site better for you, the building professional, and make it your Texas resource for news, knowledge and events on concrete and cement pavements, infrastructure, and construction. We're celebrating by giving away valuable publications on concrete pavement and stabilized bases/subgrades for subscribers to our email updates. And you'll also be registered for a May 1st drawing for even more valuable publications from the American Concrete Institute and the Portland Cement Association.
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.
