Superpave 2000 Conference to Highlight Implementation Efforts Across the Country

What's the latest on the Superpave system? Find out at the Superpave 2000 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, on August 21-22.

The event is designed for pavement and materials engineers and others interested in the Superpave system and its use across the country.

"The Superpave conference is intended to be a national open house on Superpave implementation efforts," says organizer Lee Gallivan of the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Indiana division office. "We're bringing in speakers from Florida to Arizona to include different perspectives on the new asphalt pavement design system."

Sessions will cover the latest Superpave research and the status of several States' implementation efforts. Asphalt and aggregate suppliers and highway contractors will discuss their views of the Superpave system and related issues. Participants will also get a chance to visit Superpave construction sites and research facilities in the Indianapolis area. In addition, the conference will tentatively include a panel discussion by FHWA's Superpave Technology Delivery Team.

The event is sponsored by the Indiana Department of Transportation (DOT), the Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana, the Indiana Mineral Aggregates Association, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the North Central Superpave Regional Center, and FHWA.
