Pavement Preservation Journal - Fall 2017 - 11

Anniversary
The notion that an industry trade
association like International Slurry Seal
Association, later the International Slurry
Surfacing Association, could launch a successful organizational effort in 1992 was
certainly visionary, Moulthrop says. Yet the
Foundation for Pavement Rehabilitation
and Maintenance Research (FPRMR) was
organized as a 501(c)3 non-profit public
charity by the ISSA.
Two-time FP 2 president Mike
Buckingham, a leading contractor in pavement preservation, recalls how the concept
for FPRMR started with ISSA.
"In 1991 the president of ISSA was
Bob Province, and I was on the board,"
Buckingham says. "I was appointed to a
special committee to find some ways to
raise money for research. I had imagined
silent auctions and such at events, but at a
meeting the idea of a foundation to which
people could make tax-deductible contributions came up. Sometime prior to the ISSA
convention in the Canary Islands the idea
was voted on and approved by the ISSA
board, and we had our first informal, organizational meeting at that ISSA meeting."
Province was the first president for one
year, Buckingham recalls. Buckingham took
over as president for three years before Bill
Ballou took over. "He really made things
happen," Buckingham says.
Buckingham went to AEMA and ARRA
to promote FPRMR. The name FPRMR itself
was intended to attract interest in those
organizations, he says.
"At the very beginning, I told ISSA that
they have just given birth to something that
will someday be more important than
themselves," he says. "The work that FP2
has done has been more than any of the
groups alone or together could have done
on a national level and with politics."
BALLOU TAKES HELM
FPRMR's movement to FP2 took place under
Bill Ballou as president, but before then
Ballou was instrumental in building support
for the nascent organization.

FHWA veteran Gerry Eller was first executive
director of FP2 after group moved from
association management firms

In 2002, the board of directors celebrated FP2 's
first decade with a sheet cake

"Our vision is to provide the funding,
research, and skills to see that pavement
preservation is done correctly while creating an informed infrastructure on pavement preservation for public and industry,"
said Bill Ballou in 2000, then with Koch
Pavement Solutions, and that year president of FP2.
Ballou's earliest recollection of FPRMR's
start was an early-1990s meeting with him,
Buckingham, Jim Moulthrop, and FHWA's
Gerry Eller and Jim Sorenson. "We met to
discuss the prospects for a group that could
begin selling pavement preservation, general maintenance and of course, how to do
it. We needed support, direction, leadership
and ability to educate people in various units

across the country including FHWA, state
DOTs, and local governments like counties."
Getting the private and public sectors
together was critical, Ballou recalls. "One
of the first obstacles was getting contractors, educators and associations, like
ISSA, AEMA, ARRA involved in government
groups in which they'd not previously been
involved, or even invited to attend," Ballou
says. "Eller and Moulthrop were instrumental in getting us involved with the states
via AASHTO, where we began to describe
plans for pavement preservation for their
member DOTs. We got a great reception
and made many presentations. Michigan
DOT, Caltrans, Kansas DOT, PennDOT, and
Iowa DOT were already trying to upgrade
their preservation and maintenance programs, so what we were doing fit with
their thinking."
From the very beginning, to make the
concept work, common cause had to be
found among the many methods of preservation. "Joining recycling, repaving and
emulsion treatments with crack seals and
other preservation activities was a struggle,
because each thought these other systems
were competition," Ballou says. "We had
to let them know that all these treatments
should be a part of an overall program. It
took some time and some bruised egos to
get this across. The same was true with
hot asphalt mix suppliers and contractors,
who felt they were in competition with
preservation for limited dollars."
AASHTO officials understood this well
and worked with these groups to change
thinking, Ballou says. "In some cases, it
took new administrations and retirements
for change to start," he says. "Eventually,
we got to the concrete industry, when we
began to break ice with diamond grinding,
crack sealing, concrete patching and dowel
retrofit processes that are all part of a total
PCC maintenance program for most states."
In these early days, Jim Sorenson was a
major champion for preservation at FHWA.
"Sorenson was a giant in terms of breaking
FHWA centers' habits of sitting and doing
