UC Davis' John Harvey will present Some Thoughts on the Current State and Future of Pavement in California at the ITS Berkeley Transportation Seminar April 20, 2018 at 4 p.m. in 502 Davis Hall. Beverages and cookies at 3:30 p.m. in the ITS Library.
This talk will present a summary of the current state of pavement and pavement practice (local, state, private) in California, and the likely impacts of changes in transportation that will affect how, where and what kind of pavement is produced in the state. 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.
