Abstract:

This talk will prevent a summary of the current state of pavement and pavement practice (local, state, private), and the likely impacts of changes in transportation that will affect how, where and what kind of pavement we produce in the future. The talk will conclude with some ideas for how to respond to the current state, the expected changes and the challenges of reducing the financial and environmental impacts of pavement with a particular emphasis on pavement as urban hardscape.
