PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

BY ANDREW CROW
President, FP 2 Inc.

25th Anniversary
No Time to Let Up

T

his year marks the 25th anniversary of the founding
of FP2 Inc. We provide a look back to its founding in a
special article in this issue. But our silver anniversary
is no time to let up on our mission of promoting pavement preservation in all its guises at every level of government.
We've been hard at work over the summer. In late June, our
officers, the executive director and several members of the board
met to discuss the direction of FP2 in the coming years. The
meeting focused on FP2's core areas of advocacy, research and
communication. For each of these, we discussed where we've
been, where we are, and how we develop in the future. You will
find value in some of the exciting opportunities that lay ahead
for our organization.
FP2 AT WORK: ADVOCACY
In the Summer 2017 issue, I spoke about the Transportation
Construction Coalition (TCC) national Fly-In in Washington,
D.C. At the May fly-in, board member John Rathbun, along with
Jonathan Pease, Scott Dmytrow, Scott Metcalf, Darren Coughlin
and Sean Nolan-all representatives from FP2 supporting companies or organizations-attended on behalf of FP2 and shared with
Congressional members the value of pavement preservation compared to other methods of "worst first" pavement reconstruction.
Pavement preservation warrants continued increases in dedicated
funding. You'll find a recap of that lobbying blitz on behalf of
pavement preservation in our cover story pp 17-21.
FP2 advocacy was instrumental in ensuring that federal funds
can be used for pavement preservation as part of the implementation of 2012's MAP-21 surface transportation legislation. This
milestone was preserved in 2015's FAST Act. Moving forward,
FP2 is committed to continuing our trips to Capitol Hill and future
fly-ins, where we will continue to advocate for full funding of the
Highway Trust Fund, and to communicate the cost, performance
and environmental benefits of pavement preservation.
LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENTS
An update about the product category rule (PCR) for pavement
preservation products is also important. The Federal Highway
Administration's (FHWA) Sustainable Pavements Program includes
a life-cycle assessment methodology that helps industries determine the environmental impact of their products under environmental product declarations and PCRs. This is a strong, positive
step for pavement preservation compared to alternatives, and FP2

is committed to fully supporting the renewal and broadening of
preservation-related PCRs.
The first PCR for pavement preservation products from 2011
has now expired, and FHWA's sustainable pavements group and
a consulting professional are working on a revised document.
Several FP2 contributors participate in this group and will meet
in Roanoke, Virginia, in November to ensure that revisions for a
new PCR for pavement preservation are accepted. FP2 will continue
to support this valuable initiative with an environmental impact
report that has clear data showing the positive effects of pavement
preservation when compared to competing alternatives.
FIVE YEARS OF RESEARCH
We are proud of the historic, collaborative research efforts in
pavement preservation at the NCAT and MnROAD test tracks,
funded in part by FP2 Inc. and its partners in the private sector
and state DOTs. This unprecedented, complementary partnership
has culminated in comprehensive research for both cold and hot
weather preservation treatments.
We now have exciting new data that show how effectively various pavement preservation techniques are performing on the test
sections. In order to continue enhancing advocacy efforts on Capitol
Hill and to demonstrate to agencies across the country the benefits
of preservation techniques as part of their paving programs, FP2
will work to create powerful visual tools to convey our message.
As of August 2017, we have five years of data from the many
pavement preservation applications on the NCAT and MnROAD
test sections. We see the treatments performing extremely well,
and it's critical that we share that data and maximize the benefit
of this historic project to the pavement preservation industry.
Over the next few months, we will develop graphical data on
the various techniques into visuals that demonstrate the positive
effects of pavement preservation versus other paving approaches.
In addition, we plan to build on these research results and data
to create a flyer for use with political representatives, as well as
a larger presentation deck that can be shared with other industry
contributors. Our board is confident that these tools will help FP2
with its continued advocacy and research wins for the preservation industry.
As the 2017 paving season begins to slow down, FP2 remains
committed to ensuring the acceptance, growth and funding of pavement preservation. We hope that you will participate and support
us as we advance pavement preservation from coast to coast.
