Colorado Concrete Day 2022

Our celebration of concrete pavement continues throughout the year, and we joined with our partners from the Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association (CRMCA) and the American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) in late April to celebrate Concrete Day in Colorado.

Governor Jared Polis proclaimed April 29, 2022 as Concrete Day and said “Concrete is a part of so many things we build. The concrete industry is an important contributor to Colorado’s infrastructure, economy, and future. The Polis Administration recognizes the thousands of employees that are making a difference in our state!”

Before the wind blew us all inside, we were able to serve a BBQ lunch on the lawn to many of the legislators, legislative staff, and Capitol staff to thank them for all their work throughout the legislative session.  Happy Concrete Day!

Thank you for attending the 2022 CO/WY ACPA Concrete Pavement Workshop!

We are so glad you were able to join us for a day of education and discussion on all things concrete pavement.  Congratulations to all the Award Winners!  We look forward to seeing you again in March 2023.

Inter-Industry Competition in Pavements Benefits Taxpayers

Inter-industry competition is an important tool to assist DOTs and municipalities with maximizing their budgets. In today’s environment, every agency faces budget constraints.  Fair competition, including dual pavement system bidding, enables all owners to get the most lane miles or road for their budget. Healthy competition between pavement industries provides the highest rate of return for the public.

The MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub has studied the data on competition, and their results are insightful.  Learn more here:  https://cshub.mit.edu/pavements/competition
