2018 WRAPP Workshop. Another rousing success in the books!
More than 280 attendees, representing State and Local agencies, Academia, Professional Engineering Firms and the Road Construction Preservation Industry met in Concord, CA at the Hilton Conference Center February 6th and 7th for two information packed days on a variety of pertinent Pavement Preservation materials. Registrants attended sessions and participated in discussions ranging from SB-1 funding, real time preservation projects and those experiences of Agency/Industry/Engineering experts. Research and Academic Study work, hands on demonstrations, Equipment and Vendor Displays kept the pace at a high level for those in attendance.
Keynote addresses by the honorable Jim Frazier, California State Assembly Member from the Contra Costa area and Randy Iwasaki, Director of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, both focused on SB-1 funding and the very positive effect it will have at all levels of Agency transportation infrastructure around the State. Roundtables led by Academics from several State’s Institutions and various Western US Associations Executives brought the participants up to date on the latest in technology, strategies and research in the marketplace.
We thank all the people who contributed and attended to make this Annual function as successful as past WRAPP/CCSA Workshops an
