2018 Greater Iowa Asphalt Conference and Equipment Expo Blows Up!
The Greater Iowa Asphalt Conference and Equipment Expo (GIAC) held February 28th – March 2nd at the Des Moines Airport Holiday Inn Conference Center exploded in 2018 with nearly 100 more attendees, a sold-out exhibition space and a tremendous collection of speakers. “I am amazed by the continued growth of this event,” said Bill Rosener, Executive Vice President of the Asphalt Paving Association of Iowa (APAI). “Last year we grew by over a 100 attendees and I thought we had topped out, but it happened again this year. It’s a testament to the value that agencies and contractors are finding for their people: learning the newest innovations in safety and asphalt paving, developing life-long connections, and preparing them for the upcoming construction season.”

APAI ANNUAL CONVENTION BLOWS THE OLD RECORDS OFF THE SHELF

The 62nd Asphalt Paving Association of Iowa (APAI) Annual Convention held November 29th and November 30th at the West Des Moines Marriott broke the all-time attendance record for the event with over 400 attendees. That was not all, the APAI Scholarship Auction broke its previous fund-raising record with over $31,000 to go to engineering students at Iowa’s three major universities. The theme of the annual event in 2017 was “Asphalt Drive in Style” and featured a 50’s classic car, old-school speakers and enough fun to raise a pompadour. “This event was an over-the-top success,” said Bill Rosener, Executive Vice President of the APAI. “The décor was classy-cool, the speakers were informative and interesting, and the generosity of our members was unparalleled. I couldn’t be more proud of the membership of this great association.”

IOWA'S PG BINDER GRADES AND TRAFFIC DESIGN LEVELS UNDERGO A TRANSFORMATION

In October of 2016, the nomenclature for the asphalt cement binder grading system will be changed to accommodate the Mulitple Stress Creep Recovery (MSCR) test. During this transition, the Iowa DOT has seized on the opportunity to address Iowa’s numerous pavement design levels and the need to lower the “bottom end” binder grade across the state. The MSCR binder classification and the traffic design guides will utilize the “SHOVE” acronym. “S” = Standard, “H” = Heavy, “V” = Very Heavy, “E” = Extremely Heavy.
