We hope you will join us as we bring our membership together with key industry stakeholders in Norfolk, Virginia on October 15th-18th, 2018, to build from the great success of meetings in Auburn and Minneapolis in the last two years.

The tour provides a first-hand example of the use of cold central-plant recycling and full depth reclamation, featuring narration and information provided by VDOT. The tour will move on to the CCPR plant working on the project, where attendees will view a demonstration of the processes being utilized on the I-64 project.
Highlighting the coastal Norfolk area with its naval ties, on Tuesday night meeting attendees will enjoy a tour and reception on the USS Wisconsin BB-64 battleship.The battleship's turret will provide the unique setting for the reception.
