AEM names five ‘Build’ phase finalists of the Infrastructure Vision 2050 Challenge


The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has named the five finalists in the “Build” phase of the Infrastructure Vision 2050 Challenge, a competition that offers $150,000 in prizes for “innovative ideas to overhaul the crumbling infrastructure that Americans rely upon to move people, materials, products, services and information.”

The “Build” phase, which launched in July last year, is the third and final portion of the competition. It involved solicitation of plans to implement the solutions from the second phase, or “Dream Phase,” on a larger scale.

The first phase was the “Complain” phase, which involved $5,000 in prizes awarded. The “Dream” phase winners split $45,000. The remaining $100,000 is for the “Build” phase.

“Through the Infrastructure Vision 2050 Challenge, AEM turned to the world’s grassroots innovators for ideas on how we can fix our country’s infrastructure,” says AEM President Dennis Slater. “We want to thank all 42 competitors for their innovative and revolutionary solutions. Infrastructure is an important topic both for the Trump administration and our elected officials, and this challenge demonstrates that solutions to our infrastructure problems can come from both inside and outside of Washington, D.C.”

The five finalists include:

  • Micheal Ahimbisibwe, Kampala, Uganda – Direct Drive System: An intelligible road infrastructure concept
  • Baiyu Chen & Anthony Barrs, Berkeley, California – Hyperlane: A convergence of two transportation modes: the car and the train
  • Kevin Lu, Oakland, California – Beyond Static Pavement: A unique approach that adapts highways to fit 10x more cars for one percent of the costs
  • Jeremy Martinez, Los Angeles, California – Monorail 2050: Monorail trains that efficiently connect transit hubs hosting retail and residential spaces
  • Peter Muller, Franktown, Colorado – Transportation Infrastructure Reinvented: A network of lightweight guideways that interconnect small stations, loading/offloading facilities and streets

These finalists will next compete for cash prizes at an event held during, ConExpo-Con/Agg, in Las Vegas, March 8 at 9:30 am. AEM says the finalists will present their concepts to three judges with technology, infrastructure and transportation backgrounds. These materials will also be on display during the show in the Tech Experience exhibit, which will showcase future technology trends in construction and infrastructure.

John Deere launches Root Rakes for skids steers, CTLs, compact wheel loaders


John Deere has introduced it a new line of Root Rakes, which include models RR72, RR78 and RR84. Optimized to work with John Deere G- and E-Series skid steers and compact track loaders and K-Series compact wheel loaders, the attachments are designed for land clearing, ground leveling and moving materials away from buildings and obstructions.

The rakes gather rocks and debris while allowing soil to sift through, for minimal site and landscape disturbance. Built with alloy-steel construction, the units have replaceable pin-on teeth and zinc-plated pivot pins with protected zerks. A weld-on “D” ring expands the list of tasks the attachments can tackle, including pulling brush in forestry applications or move scrap on a jobsite.

Available in 72-inch, 78-inch and 84-inch widths, the rakes help shield the front of the host machine, protecting them against damage from large piles of brush or jagged scrap. By using the universal self-cleaning Quik-Tatch system found on all Deere skid steers, CTLs and compact wheel loaders, changing attachments is easy and quick. The rakes are also compatible with several competitive models.

What to see at ConExpo 2017: US Radar, Asphalt Drum Mixers, Leica Geosystems in the Silver Lot


The big show is fast approaching, and ConExpo exhibitors have given us a sneak peek into what they’ll have in store for those attending the March 7-11 massive exhibition. Here’s the spotlight on three exhibitors in the Silver Lot:

US Radar, booth S-5710

Seeker 5.0 simplifies the use ground-penetrating radar (GPR) software by automating several settings, such as gain control, which adjusts the gain of the radar signal to enhance underground target identification and layer tracing. Seeker 5.0 also automatically recognizes and confirms the GPR system’s antenna and configures antenna-specific settings such as depth range and encoder interval.

Booth activities: Demonstrations of ground-penetrating radar technology.

Other equipment on display: Ground-penetrating radar systems, Quantum Imager, Quantum Mini, Q5C, Q25C ground-penetrating radar systems

Asphalt Drum Mixers, booth S-5428

The EX Series asphalt plants from Asphalt Drum Mixers use single-drum counterflow technology, featuring long aggregate drying and mixing times. The plants produce 100 to 425 tons of material per hour and can also process as much as 50 percent RAP. The counterflow technology uses separate drying and mixing zones to achieve maximum heat transfer and fuel efficiency, virtually eliminating hydrocarbon emissions, according to the company. The EX Series comes in both portable and stationary models.

leica-icp42-with-icp4-screen-page-0Leica Geosystems AG, booth N-12867

The iCON iGD4SP grading solution for dozers equipped with 6-way blades provides exact calculation of blade tilt and angles. The system allows you to run machines in automatic mode and keep precision without needing to rework areas. The scalable unit allows you to expand your system as your projects grow in scope and size. Small diameter masts give clear visibility to the blade’s working area.

Additional equipment at booth: Machine controls, 3D system, driller and pilers system, construction layout, robots, lasers, cable detection, reality capsture, scan stations, software and other technologies.

(Note: Leica’s Pegasus:Backpack will be showcased in ConExpo’s Tech Experience, located in front of the South Hall.)

Louisiana DOTD issues RFI to accelerate 1-10 Capital Corridor work through a P3


The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD) has issued a request for information (RFI) to “accelerate major enhancements” on the I-10 Capital Corridor via a public-private partnership (P3).

Last year, the state legislature changed a state law that allows the agency to solicit P3s. This is the first time the state has “seriously pursued such a partnership for infrastructure.”

“This is a first step in positioning the State to leverage private sector resources in delivering major enhancements to the I-10 Capital Corridor,” says Gov. John Bel Edwards. “We aren’t likely to have the revenue needed to make a P3 work for the entire corridor today, but we will be ready to advance such a partnership if the legislature acts in a meaningful way to fund transportation during the upcoming Regular Session. That is my commitment to the people of Louisiana.”

LDOTD says the RFI is open until March 31, but that the state isn’t “obligated to pursue a solicitation or otherwise enter into a P3 due to issuance of the RFI” and that the products included it in can “advance” while being considered. The documentation for the RFI is available here.

“Private investors have their eyes on Louisiana and are eager to invest here,” says LDOTD Secretary Shawn Wilson. “If we have the funding, I am confident that P3s can work in Louisiana. When handled responsibly, the benefit of these agreements is that more projects can be delivered sooner and that is what we want to provide to the people of Louisiana.”

Senate confirms Elaine Chao as Secretary of Transportation


The Senate has confirmed Elaine Chao as the next Secretary of Transportation in a 93-6 vote Jan. 31. She was sworn in the same day.


Chao’s husband Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), voted “present.” Voting against Chao were Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), Kristen Gillibrand (D-New York), Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon), Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-New York) and Elizabeth Warrant (D-Massachusetts).

According to a report by The Hill, Chao has been through the confirmation process four times before this without a dissenting vote on the Senate floor. She previously served as Labor Secretary under George W. Bush and as Deputy Transportation Secretary under George H.W. Bush.

“It is an honor to rejoin the extraordinary people of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and begin working with them to rebuild, refurbish and revitalize America’s infrastructure,” Chao says. “My goal has always been to help others access opportunity and build better lives for themselves and their families by supporting policies that foster job creation and workforce competitiveness. At this crucial time, the Department of Transportation can make a tremendous difference for our country.”

During her nomination hearing before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Chao emphasized the need for sustained funding for transportation projects, with the potential for using public-private partnerships as an ingredient in a mix of financial methodologies.

“We congratulate Elaine Chao on her confirmation as U.S. Transportation Secretary and stand ready to work with USDOT to continue efforts to rebuild and modernize America’s aging transportation infrastructure,” says American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Executive Director Bud Wright. “In her confirmation testimony, Secretary Chao said she believes the Trump administration will support more federal funding for infrastructure as well as private financing. AASHTO agrees that a balanced approach to transportation investment will be required to fully support America’s transportation system into the future.”

“I congratulate Elaine Chao on her confirmation as the next Secretary of the United States Department of Transportation,” says Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pennsylvania). I look forward to getting to work with her, the new administration, and my colleagues in Congress on the many issues before the Committee this year, including critical FAA reforms and smart, responsible investments in our Nation’s infrastructure network. We have a tremendous opportunity to improve our transportation systems, reduce regulatory burdens, encourage innovation and private-public partnerships, strengthen our competitiveness, and build a 21st century infrastructure for America.”

NAPA names Gallagher Asphalt’s Dan Gallagher as 2017 chairman


The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) has named Dan Gallagher, vice president of operations & CFO of Gallagher Asphalt Corporation, Thorton, Illinois, as its chairman for 2017.


Gallagher has served on NAPA engineering committees and chaired the association’s task forces on recycling and energy conversation, and has worked on industry best practices and warm-mix asphalt adoption.

“Tax reform and investment in America’s infrastructure are being discussed both in the White House and Congress,” Gallagher says. “We will be working diligently to ensure that a stable funding stream for the construction, maintenance, and improvement of our nation’s infrastructure is part of those discussions.”

In addition to working toward reliable funding for infrastructure, he plans to make engineering and pavement quality and workzone safety part of his priorities during his term as chairman.

“We are entering 2017 with a lot of optimism, but we have still face a competitive business environment,” Gallagher says. “NAPA is leading important educational and research efforts that will help the industry continue to deliver high-quality, long-lasting, and sustainable asphalt pavements for the driving public.”

Gallagher Asphalt runs three permanent asphalt plants and provides paving, hot-in-place recycling and trucking in the Chicago Southland area.

Portland begins cleaning sand and gravel off roadways after recent snow storm


Photo: Elliot Njus; The Oregonian.

Crews from the Portland Bureau of Transportation began sweeping up the hundreds of cubic yards of sand and gravel that was spread on roadways to provide some traction for motorists during the most recent snowstorm, The Oregonian reports. Crews will work day and night, as well as weekends to get the job done as soon as possible, but the process is expected to take weeks.

The bureau told the newspaper that it started sweeping over the Jan. 21-22, 2017 weekend, focusing on bike lanes where much of the gravel had been pushed.

John Brady, a spokesman for the bureau, explained to the newspaper that, for each day sand and gravel was put down, it will take three to five days to sweep it up, because the city has more spreader trucks than street-sweepers, and the sweepers only travel at 5 miles per hour. That adds up to approximately three weeks to get most of the sand and gravel off the roads.

“We had just finished cleaning up the sand and gravel from the last storm when this storm hit,” Brady told the newspaper. “Essentially, we’re starting where we left off.”
