Portland cement concrete pavement joint sealing material technology has evolved in recent decades. TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program’s NCHRP Synthesis 568: Portland Cement Concrete Pavement Joint Sealant Practices and Performance helps to establish a standardized approach to joint sealant evaluation by sharing the current state-of-practice from state departments of transportation. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, October 12, 2023 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that will provide key information and present best practices for developing an effective joint sealing in concrete pavements. Presenters will explore the needs and benefits as well as the circumstances where sealing joints is warranted.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program and the Standing Technical Committees on Pavement Maintenance, Pavement Preservation, and Concrete Pavement Construction and Rehabilitation.
Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100.
