Executive Director's Message:
Wow!    What a year and what a month for UAPA.    Before I get any further along, I want to take just a brief moment to thank you for all you have done for the association in 2015.    It's always fun to look back on the year that was and examine challenges and opportunities that were presented for the growth and sustainability of the association.    Personally, I count 2015 as a great success, and to cap it off, here are just a few of the things that happened in December:

Pavement Preservation Journal reports on UDOT researchers:

Utah Department of Transportation researchers are attempting to establish a correlation between friction testing devices, with the potential of eventually benefitting surface courses and the drivers who use them.
Because pavement friction is an important component to safe roads, Utah DOT personnel asked researchers at Brigham Young University and Raba Kistner Infastructure to determine whether the frictional properties of aggregates used in asphalt surface treatments can be predicted, and correlate to laboratory testing.
