The Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) Research & Education Foundation has released of its latest resource: the Guide to Concrete Trails. Like its immensely popular predecessor, the Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots, the Guide to Concrete Trails was prepared by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center (CP Tech Center) with its development including review and input from a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) comprised of the most experienced concrete pavement designers and contractors in the country.

“Given increased federal and local investment in recreational trails, funding the development of this Guide was a very easy decision for our Board to make,” said Foundation Chairman Alexander Car, adding, “This project is another stellar example of the informative and practical resources that the Foundation provides to the industry each year.” Foundation Executive Director Julie Garbini added, “We received a huge return on investment with the Concrete Overlay Guide and anticipate a similar result with the Guide to Concrete Trails.”

The Guide to Concrete Trails is available for download from the Foundation’s website at and hardcopies are available on request. The Guide will also be featured at the Foundation’s booth at NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks in Orlando in early October. The Vision of the RMC Research & Education Foundation is to be a lasting resource for increasing quality, professionalism, and sustainability in the ready mixed concrete industry by funding and implementing research and education programs.
