           • Logical Approach                                         • The big question…”What changed”
             – Weigh “real” data and “fuzzy” data
               differently                                              – “It worked in the lab, but doesn’t work
             – Consider all possibilities                                 in the field. Lab results never agree
             – Don’t divorce reality or skirt issues                      with field results”
             – Play the odds
             – Always keep track of time frames                         – “We have been laying this stuff for 3
             – Use documentation and baselines
                                                                          years, we haven’t changed anything,
             – There is no such thing as “Black Magic”

             – Change one variable at a time

A Digital World of Pavements
      A world of pavement information is
now available with one click at
www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement. The Federal
Highway Administration’s (FHWA) new
topic-based Web site is the one-stop
destination for information on everything
from pavement design and construction to
maintenance and rehabilitation.
      Visitors can select a specific topic,
such as design, or choose a focus area,
such as “Optimize pavement perfor-
mance,” “Advanced quality system,”
“Pavement surface characteristics,” or
“Environmental stewardship.” Also
featured are listings for publications,
software, upcoming conferences and
events, and workshops and training,
including National Highway Institute
courses. Additional options for site users
include looking up technical guidance and
technology transfer resources, as well as
information on pavement research.
       Site visitors can also find links to            The site’s comprehensive list of          more information on FHWA’s topic-based
pavement-related communities of practice,        contacts include FHWA staff across the          Web sites, contact Bob Hayes at FHWA,

      Directory Update Information Needed NOW!
            August 31, 2005, was the deadline by which all member company official representatives were to have updated their
      company information on the ISSA website to facilitate the publication of the next membership directory. If you have not yet
      done so, please go to the website immediately and update all requested contact info, branch office locations, plant locations,
      etc.
            For the first time, we are gathering all this information electronically and the learning curve for all of us will be steep.
      You have to remember that ISSA’s financial resources are limited and we do not have the funds to retain a web expert to
      build a site like Microsoft’s or IBM’s, or even like that of many of our members. Therefore, we are approaching this process
      one step at a time and we need your help to make it work.
            If you have any difficulty in getting your information on the website, please contact ISSA Director of Member
      Services Lisa Cerone at 410-267-0023 or cerone@slurry.org.

preservation. “The goal is to help States
assess where they are and provide com-
ments and recommendations on what they
can do to further develop and enhance
their pavement preservation programs,”
says Tom Deddens of FHWA’s Construc-
tion and System Preservation Team.
       Pavement preservation is a network
level, long-term strategy that enhances
pavement performance by using a variety
of cost-effective surface treatments that
extend pavement life. These treatments
must be carefully selected and must be
applied before the pavement sustains
structural damage. As implementation of
pavement preservation programs increases
nationwide, however, each highway
agency faces different challenges in
applying pavement preservation treatments
and establishing an effective preservation
program in its State. FHWA’s technical
assistance program will help agencies
assess their particular circumstances and
address challenges that may exist. FHWA
and NCPP will also benefit by obtaining
data to establish a national baseline for
pavement preservation practices.
       Each review will include approxi-
mately 80 hours of program assessment
and interviews with key highway personnel
involved in the development, implementa-
tion, and management of the State’s
pavement maintenance, evaluation, and
preservation programs. “The intent of the

SLURRY SYSTEMS WORKSHOP


  HANDS ON PROGRAM FOR ENGINEERS,
INSPECTORS, AND INDUSTRY PERSONNEL



          Preliminary Program and
           Registration Brochure
           January 31 - February 3, 2006

                         WHAT IS THE SLURRY SYSTEMS WORKSHOP?
    The Slurry Systems Workshop is a study course offering a challenging and informative program on slurry seal and microsurfacing with “hands-
    on” operation demonstrations and workshop-type discussions. Highly qualified professionals in the field will cover topics on slurry seal and
    microsurfacing including materials and equipment, specifications, hand mixes, calibration, quality control, and inspection.
    Attendees will also be able to view state of the art slurry and microsurfacing equipment, independent of the paving demonstrations.
    ISSA encourages all ISSA members, and non-members who are contractors, suppliers, engineers, consultants as well as government agencies
    to attend this valuable workshop. A certificate of achievement will be awarded to all participants at the completion of the workshop.
    In addition to attending the workshop, your company or organization can become a workshop sponsor. Your company name will be listed in the
    final program as a sponsor, displayed on signage, and you’ll have the opportunity to bring company literature to display.
    Please read all of the enclosed information and send in your registration for this valuable and popular workshop. We look forward to seeing you
    in Las Vegas!
