Parking Poster Competition


Following up on last year’s theme on “Embracing Pavement Technologies”, the theme for the 2018 Pavement/Materials Conference is focused on “Staying ahead of the Performance Curve”. Pavement performance has been classically described as an “S” shape curve. This performance is dependent on pavement age, traffic, layers strength and engineering properties. Pavement construction quality, maintenance, and preservations practices will dictate where pavements position on the performance curve.

Our nationally and locally recognized speakers will recap many of the related issues to pavement performance. The speakers will present on the latest innovation in concrete pavements design and construction, geotechnical challenges and solutions, and asphalt performance testing. The FHWA Mobile Asphalt Laboratory will be demonstrated as part of the conference.

This two-day conference is sponsored by Arizona State University (ASU), Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Arizona’s industry and local governments and will be held at Arizona State University, Tempe Campus (1290 S. Normal Avenue, Tempe, AZ 85281) on November 15-16, 2018 in the Memorial Union (MU).
