The Texas A&M Transportation Institute recently hosted DBi Services’ 9th annual Infrastructure Maintenance Symposium. The symposium was held August 27–28 and showcased the latest developments and technologies in the fields of infrastructure maintenance, operations and management.
The two-day symposium featured educational breakout sessions on topics that focused on the current state-of-the-practice in transportation infrastructure maintenance. The participants also spent an afternoon on field inspection activities, which included evaluation of high friction surfacing applications, high speed braking demonstrations comparing the braking distances on various surfaces including a high friction surface treatment and vegetation management trial plots. In addition, at the end of the field trip, there was a demonstration showing the latest in attenuator safety technology through a live crash test performed on a SMART Cushion.
“Hosting the Infrastructure Maintenance Symposium at TTI provided many new and unique opportunities to demonstrate the latest technology and innovations in the industry,” said TTI Senior Research Engineer Paul Carlson. “We were excited to host the event and showcase TTI’s research facilities.”
