CPAM Hosts Tour of Iowa Overlays
The Concrete Paving Association of Minnesota (CPAM) hosted a “Tour of Selected Iowa and Minnesota Highways” on November 6, 2014. This tour was a repeat tour from 2007, with some new additions.
The intent of this tour was to demonstrate the performance history of concrete overlays. Although some of the older sections are now showing signs of some repair needs, these overlays continue to stand the test of time with little to no maintenance over their 20- to 30-year history. Please contact CPAM with any questions. View the complete report here.
