MnROAD 2014 Peer Exchange (photo gallery)

MnROAD is hosting pavement researchers from around North America this week to discuss research conducted at its cold weather pavement testing facility in Albertville, Minnesota.

Participants at the three-day conference (June 10 to 12) are reviewing the findings of recent pooled fund studies, sharing their implementation experience and recommending what projects should be picked for the next round of research.

Bob Orthmeyer from the Federal Highway Administration, said MnROAD was the only facility in the country that could supply several test sections needed for a recent study.
