Program Released for NPPC 2016 Nashville
The program of speakers and presentations has been released for the biggest event in pavement preservation in 2016, the 2nd National Pavement Preservation Conference, to be held in Nashville Oct. 11-14, 2016. Please review the program here.
It will build on the success of the 1st NPPC held in Nashville August 2012. A special event will be pavement preservation field demonstrations in the parking lot of LP Field, home of the NFL Tennessee Titans.
The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Streets is the winner of FP2's James B. Sorenson Award for Excellence in Pavement Preservation for 2015.
Under the leadership of Nazario Sauceda, director of the Bureau of Street Services, Department of Public Works, the 40-year decline in city-wide road quality was arrested via aggressive pavement management and preservation. Last year, the Bureau of Street Services completed the largest annual pavement preservation program in the history of Los Angeles, with a total of 2,400 lane-miles of pavement preservation completed during the FY 2014-15, the distance between Los Angeles and New York City. "We made it happen by working incessantly -- days, nights, weekends, and holidays -- while embracing the principles of efficiency, innovation, performance stats, and intradepartmental collaboration," Sauceda said.
Jim Sorenson (1949-2009) was senior construction and system preservation engineer, FHWA Office of Asset Management, and he was a great champion of pavement preservation at the national level. The pavement preservation industry had no greater friend and FP2 honors his memory with the Sorenson Award.
Intended to recognize agency pavement preservation, the Sorenson award is usually, but not always, presented to city and county agencies. To nominate an agency, please include a brief write-up of how the agency gained acceptance and support for its pavement preservation program; how long the program has been in existence, any special or unique public awareness actions; press releases; the contact person in the agency; and the person or firm making the nomination.
Criteria to evaluate candidate agencies include: process used to gain acceptance by elected officials, general public, employees, and industry (40 percent); how well the program relates to the theme of The Right Treatment, for the Right Road, at the Right Time (20 percent); tangible improvement in their system (20 percent); techniques used to keep public notified of what is being done and why (10 percent); and uniqueness of program (10 percent).
Deadline for entries to the 2016 Sorenson Award is July 1. For more information, or to submit nominations, please contact FP2’s executive director, Jim Moulthrop, at 8100 West Court, Austin, Tex., 78759, voice (512) 970-8865, e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
