HOW FP 2 WORKS FOR YOU

National Center in New Hands
as Founder Galehouse Steps Aside
fter 14 years in the position, I
recently made the decision to
step down as director of the
National Center for Pavement
Preservation (NCPP) and reduce my work
hours. This change has given me the opportunity to reflect on pavement preservation
and how it's grown and flourished through
the years.
From my perspective, the spark that
ignited pavement preservation was
the Intermodal Surface Transportation
Efficiency Act (ISTEA) in 1991. This
piece of federal legislation was the first
to address the highway system in the
post-Interstate era.
At the time, I was working for the
Michigan DOT and was tasked with developing a program for cost-effectively preserving Michigan's highways and bridges.
Although some pavement treatments and
repair techniques had been used for years,
there was no frame of reference available
from which a system could be created to
effectively treat roadways and extend system life. Therefore, a new program was
created from scratch.
I developed guidance documents and
treatment specifications, training programs, and hammered out programmatic
agreements with the FHWA Michigan
Division Office. As a result, federal funds
were allowed be used for "preventive
maintenance," provided the program
was shown to be cost-effective. This
was the first such program in the country with a dedicated budget that included
federal dollars.
CHANGING THE CULTURE
In the early days, changing the institutional culture was very difficult because
agencies were accustomed to addressing the needs of the worst roads first. At
that time, the concept of preserving good
roads and preventing them from falling
into disrepair was foreign and not widely
accepted. The thinking was, why spend
money on a good road when other roads
are falling apart?

BY LARRY GALEHOUSE

However, through persistence, and a
steady application of timely preservation
treatments, it wasn't long until Michigan's
new program experienced success and
began to grow. From this initial success,
funding for the program increased year
after year.
Soon, many state DOTs became
interested in the program and sought
further information. Some flew delegations to Michigan, while others offered

invitations to visit them. The program
was beginning to have national recognition. Contacts were made and solid
friendships developed with many outstanding people, including Roger Olson
(Minnesota), John Vance (Mississippi),
and Steve Varnedoe (North Carolina).
Soon afterward, I was selected to serve
with the AASHTO Lead States Team on
Pavement Preservation. Our team was made
up of outstanding people from several states
working together over a four-year period to
advance pavement preservation. I believe
our team successfully laid the foundation
for greater awareness of pavement preservation throughout the nation.
In 1997, I represented AASHTO as signatory to the original letter of understanding
between the FHWA and the Foundation
for Pavement Rehabilitation and
Maintenance Research (FPRMR, later
FP2 Inc.) to develop and deliver comprehensive training programs and establish
an agency/industry expert task group
(ETG) for pavement preservation. Some of
the giants of early pavement preservation
were also present, including Bill Ballou,
Jim Moulthrop, and Jim Sorenson.
Bill Ballou set the wheels in motion to
implement pavement preservation. He

Representing the American Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials, Galehouse
was instrumental in facilitating cooperation of the Federal Highway Administration with FP2 's
predecessor, the Foundation for Pavement Rehabilitation and Maintenance Research in support
of pavement preservation. This set the stage for creation of FHWA's Pavement Preservation Expert
Task Group, relaunched in 2016. At the signing ceremony July 2, 1997 are, back row, Jim Moulthrop
(FPRMR), Jose Garci and Don Steinke (both FHWA), Mike Krissoff (representing AEMA and ARRA),
Jim Sorenson (FHWA), Bernie McCarthy (Asphalt Institute), Mary Hogan (FPRMR), Moges Ayele
(National Highway Institute), Byron Lord (FHWA), Angel Correa (FHWA), Barry Dunn (representing
ISSA), Larry Galehouse (AASHTO) and John Fiegel (FPRMR executive director). In front are FPRMR
president Bill Ballou and FHWA's executive director Tony Kane
