The Ohio Research Institute for Transportation and the Environment (ORITE), part of the Fritz J. and Dolores H. Russ College of Engineering and Technology at Ohio University, will sponsor the 2009 International Conference on Perpetual Pavement (ICPP) Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton Hotel. Experts will discuss life cycle analysis, case histories, optimal design and construction approaches for asphalt pavements, and more.

Perpetual pavements, designed for a lifespan of 40 years, are becoming popular with transportation agencies seeking to reduce lifecycle costs. Industry experts will present more than 30 papers, and government and private sector leaders will deliver keynote remarks. The conference also features a visit to ORITE's Ohio University Accelerated Pavement Load Facility in Lancaster, and various companies and organizations will exhibit. Attendees will receive 8.75 professional development hours.



ORITE organized the conference in cooperation with the American Society of Civil Engineers Central Ohio Section, APA, FHWA, Flexible Pavements of Ohio, NAPA, NCAT, NYDOT and ODOT.
