Make plans now to attend the 2004 Concrete Bridge Conference (CBC), to be held May 17-18, 2004, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Sponsored by the National Concrete Bridge Council (NCBC), American Concrete Institute, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the conference will feature 18 technical sessions on state-of-the-art topics, with an emphasis on rapid bridge construction and high-performance concrete applications. The first CBC, held in 2002 in Nashville, Tennessee, drew more than 300 bridge engineers. "The Concrete Bridge Conference has quickly become a premier national venue for the exchange of ideas and information on all aspects of concrete bridge design, materials, and construction," says Jerry Potter of FHWA's Office of Bridge Technology.
The conference will also feature exhibits showcasing the latest industry products and services. In addition, a conference proceedings will be provided to all attendees following the event. The conference is being held in conjunction with the 2004 Post-Tensioning Institute Technical Conference and Exhibition. Those registering for the CBC can attend both events.
