WCPA/WisDOT Annual Concrete Paving Inspection Workshops

The primary objective of the WCPA / WisDOT Concrete Pavement Inspection Guide is to educate the concrete pavement inspector for the purpose of ensuring “Good Practices” during the concrete pavement construction process. Proper inspection plays a key role in providing a well-constructed high-quality pavement and can influence performance quality and the ride quality. WCPA developed the course and guide for municipalities in 2008 and the “pilot course” was given in May 2009. The manual and PowerPoint development were developed with WCPA as the lead and WisDOT providing review and approval.

2017 Course Schedule:

March 7 – SW Region in Madison

March 23 – SE Region in Waukesha

April 5 – NW Region in Eau Claire

April 12 – NE Region in Green Bay

National Center for Concrete Pavement Technology’s Workshop on Long Life Concrete Pavement Joint Performance in Urban Areas –

March 12, 2015 

Holiday Inn Madison at The American Center
5109 West Terrace Drive, Madison, WI 53718

During the last several years, a problem has arisen involving deterioration of concrete at the joints on pavements in cold weather states where deicing chemicals are routinely used.  This durability concern is being addressed with a training program sponsored by the Ready Mix Concrete Research & Education Foundation, (NRMCA), Portland Cement Association (PCA) and a Transportation Pool Fund Study TPF 5 (224) and presented by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center (CP Tech Center).

Concrete Pavement Preservation Workshop

March 19, 2015 

Sheraton Madison Hotel
706 John Nolen Drive, Madison, WI 53713

This session provides guidance on the design, construction and selection of concrete pavement preservation treatments including full depth repair, partial depth repair, retrofit dowel bars, diamond grinding and joint sealing. Discussions focus on providing the right treatment at the right time, assuring the design of the preservation is cost effective and proper construction practices and procedures. This training is based upon the “Concrete Pavement Preservation Workshop” and reference manual developed by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center. Attendees receive a copy of the reference manual developed by the center for the Federal Highway Administration.

Optimized Diamond Grinding for Concrete Pavements

October 2, 2012, Neenah, Wisconsin

The industry has created a new concrete surface texture designed for use on city streets and thoroughfares that is favorable to bicycles, roller blades and other recreational activities, while providing a durable and long lasting riding surface. This texture, which was developed for use on low speed roadways in urban neighborhoods, is an optimized diamond saw cut texture that provides a smooth, safe and quiet ride at a competitive price.
