The Louisiana Parish Engineers and Supervisors Association (LPESA) was founded in 1972 to foster and maintain a high professional spirit among Louisiana parish's public works and engineering employees. It provides instructive, entertaining, and important programs to those primarily concerned with the planning, operation, and maintenance of parish infrastructure. The LPESA is an organization through which programs may be coordinated among parishes and other government agencies. The organization's goal is to include an active member in every parish in Louisiana. CLICK HERE to visit the LPESA website.

Louisiana DOTD’s Specification for Internally Cured Concrete: The Key to 100-Year Service Life?
May 21, 2021
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. (CST)
Presenter: Jeff Speck, FACI, Arcosa Lightweight
Internal curing using presoaked lightweight fine aggregate
reduces concrete shrinkage and related cracking, extending the
service life of structures built with Internally Cured Concrete
(ICC). Lafayette Consolidated Government has led
implementation of ICC in Louisiana with the help of the Louisiana
Transportation Research Center (LTRC). LA DOTD has drafted a new specification for ICC for use in the
state’s transportation structures to maximize the return on its infrastructure investments.
Arcosa Lightweight, in support by the Concrete and Aggregates Association of Louisiana (CAAL), will
present the science behind ICC, review the draft DOTD specification and provide examples of the use of
ICC in Louisiana and throughout the U.S.
More information to come regarding June - December 2021 showcases.
