Micro/slurry has been used in Minnesota since the early 1990s, yet a vast number of agencies have no experience with these products. This workshop will discuss what micro/slurry surfacing is, the differences between the two products, and how and where to use each one. Project selection, development of specifications, and construction details will also be discussed in detail.
This workshop is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (registration begins at 9 a.m.) on April 2, 2014, at the Carlton County Public Works Facility, 1630 County Road 61, Carlton, MN 55718.
County or city engineers and their technical staff who have responsibility for designing and/or managing micro/slurry surfacing.
Thomas Wood has been employed for more than 20 years by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, where he works on pavement preventative maintenance methods with the Office of Materials.
