The 56th Annual Illinois Bituminous Paving Conference took place December 14 and 15, 2015, at the iHotel and Conference Center in Champaign, Illinois, with a terrific turnout. If you were a part of the conference and would like to give some feedback to the organizers of the event, please visit https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/9794167 and fill out the brief survey. The survey is anonymous.

The Bituminous Conference is a compact one-day program providing an opportunity for highway engineers to meet with contractors, government officials, consultants, and fellow engineers.  Professionals gather to share the latest technical information and review actual field reports in the area of hot-mix asphalt construction.

Responding to the stated needs of highway engineers, a planning committee of people actively engaged in the field has created a forum for the dissemination of current technical data and the improvement of highways throughout Illinois.

The conference is specifically designed for people actively involved in asphalt construction:  highway engineers; government officials responsible for developing, implementing, enforcing, and evaluating contractor regulations affecting bituminous construction; contractors; consultants; university researchers; and representatives of firms supplying goods and services to the industry.
