NCATThe National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University hosted its sixth Test Track Conference March 27‐29 at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. More than 250 people attended the two-and-a-half-day event to learn about NCAT’s advancements in asphalt pavement design, construction, technologies and maintenance. Discussions included an overview of the findings from NCAT’s sixth testing cycle and an update of research conducted through a partnership with the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Road Research facility.

Numerous representatives from sponsoring agencies also delivered testimonials describing how their organizations have benefited by implementing test track research.

While visiting Auburn, participants had the opportunity to tour the NCAT Test Track and visit pavement preservation sections on U.S. 280 and Lee County 159. The conference provided a valuable networking opportunity and set the stage for further cooperation among federal, state and local agencies and the private sector.
