Texas Asphalt Pavement Quality Initiative
Be Part of the Texas Asphalt Pavement Quality Initiative! Join the Texas Asphalt Pavement Association for a series of hands-on, interactive workshops designed to deliver essential, yet practical information to personnel working at every level on asphalt pavement projects, from design to construction. Contact Jim Warren, Director of Engineering and Technology at TXAPA for more details at (512) 312-2099 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Engineer Program is recommended for TxDOT Area, District, Design, Project, and Maintenance Engineers, and CE&I Firms. Participants will better understand how to specify, design, construct, and maintain quality, longer-lasting asphalt pavements.
The Inspector Program is recommended for TxDOT Inspectors, CE&I Firms, and City/County Inspectors. Participants will better understand key aspects of production and construction necessary to provide proper inspection services for asphalt pavement projects.
The Plant Operations Program is recommended for Plant Superintendents, Foremen, and Quality Control Personnel. Participants will better understand key aspects of plant operations necessary to apply best practices when working with asphalt at the plant.
The Roadway Operations Program is recommended for Plant Superintendents, Foremen, Quality Control Personnel, and Project Managers. Participants will better understand key aspects of asphalt pavement construction (from surface preparation through compaction) necessary to apply best practices when constructing asphalt roads.
