    About this Project
    Brief Project Description & Background
    KSU will offer courses on Superpave mixture materials in Kansas for educating the paving and inspection crew. KSU will also work as an outlet for dissemination of the Mid-America Transportation Center (MATC) research results via its Annual Kansas Transportation Engineering Conference. KSU will also offer a 2-day workshop on Thin Surface Treatments for bituminous pavements in the Kansas City area to serve both Missouri and Kansas. KSU will participate in the K-State Sustainability Program outreach (http://www.sustainability.k-state.edu/outreach/) to explore ways to promote bicycling and walking around campus and in the City of Manhattan. KSU will also integrate some of the work under its Traffic Assistance Services for Kansas (TASK) (http://www.dce.k-state.edu/conf/task/) with the MATC-KSU technology transfer program.
    Research Objective
    First objective is to offer three, week-long Superpave mixture training classes on Kansas State University. The second objective is to disseminate results obtained from various MATC research projects through the Annual Kansas Transportation Engineering conference whenever the project/projects fit(s) in the program. The final objective is to offer a workshop on Thin Surface Treatments for bituminous pavements.
    Potential Benefits
    The project will result in a better educated workforce.
