The American Concrete Pavement Association’s (ACPA’s) Roadway Concrete Pavement Design Workshop is a hands-on two-day workshop that will cover general background details on the variables considered in concrete pavement design, which design method is appropriate for a given set of conditions, and showcase new construction and overlay design methodologies common in the U.S. The workshop also will detail digital resources and web-based tools that aid in the design process. The focus of this workshop is concrete pavement design methods and details but construction means and methods and the interdependence between these means and methods and design also is a key theme. Upon completing this workshop you’ll know which design software and tools to turn to for a given project and be able to design better performing and more cost-efficient concrete pavements because of the knowledge and appreciation you will have for the construction side of the equation.
This comprehensive training event will be held at ACPA’s Rosemont, Illinois-headquarters, located approximately 1 mile east of O'Hare International Airport at 9450 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Rosemont, Illinois. (Look for signs to the third floor conference room, or stop by ACPA’s suite #150 for assistance.) The event begins on the morning of Wednesday, May 14, and continues through 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 15.

Professional Development Hours
ACPA will award up to thirteen (13) professional development hours (PDH’s) to participants who complete the Roadway Concrete Pavement Thickness Design Workshop. The award of these PDH’s requires participation and documentation of attendance for both days. The award of PDH’s is intended for states/provinces that allow self-reporting, but in all cases, participants interested in the award of PDH's should check with local licensing organizations for specific requirements prior to registering and participating in these workshops.
Compliance with licensure requirements is the sole responsibility of participants, and ACPA assumes no responsibility for the compliance with professional licensure requirements of local jurisdictions.
Registration Includes Design Software
Participants of the workshop will receive complimentary copies of ACPA’s StreetPave 12 and WinPAS 12 software (up to a $600 value). The registration rate is $775 for ACPA members and $925 for non-members. A rate of $550 is available for government employees (see registration section for details).
Featured Design Software and How to Obtain Them
