Join us for the fourth workshop webinar on Tuesday, May 24th at 9 am in the

Design & Construction of Sustainable Concrete Pavements in Desert Environments series as we take a look at “Pavement Construction and Performance.”

Southwest Concrete Paving Co. builds the Boulder City Bypass in the Southern Nevada desert. Note the mural of Hoover Dam on the concrete wall in the background.

Successful paving in desert environments requires attention to key construction processes and we have three experienced concrete professionals who will convey their first-hand knowledge of what it takes to build sustainable concrete pavements that perform best in desert environments.

Angel Mateos from the University of California Pavement Research Center, Dave Rath of Southwest Concrete Paving Company, and Matt Fonte of Fonte & Company will share their experiences, knowledge, and tips on how to succeed in challenging desert climates.

Join these panelists and our Host & Moderator Charles Stuart, Executive Director of SWCPA, on Tuesday morning, May 24th at 9:00 am Pacific Time for an informative and engaging online session.


Upcoming Tuesday Morning Webinars at 9:00 am Pacific Time

June 28th         Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for Concrete Pavement
EPDs provide a first-step in measuring the CO2 emissions from concrete paving projects. Learn how EPDs fit into the larger effort to improve the sustainability of concrete pavements over the entire life of the pavement. Presented by Leif Wathne of the CP Tech Center, Dominika Ercolini of Caltrans, and Keith Krugh of Martin Marietta.

July 19th          Durability of Rapid Strength Concrete Pavement
Rapid setting concrete pavements have matured from a “quick fix” to a long-life solution that can deliver a lifespan of 40 years. Learn about the concrete and cement properties that lead to the exceptional field performance of this material. Presented by Tyler Ley of Oklahoma State University, and Shakir Shatnawi, Shatec Engineering Consultants, LLC.

 Coming later this year

  • Concrete Pavement Design 101
  • Top 10 Inspection Points for Concrete Pavement
  • Concrete Pavement Construction Fundamentals
