Pavement managers and industry leaders all agree extending the life of pavements is a critical
component of a well managed infrastructure. Working in conjunction with the National Center for Pavement Preservation (NCPP), in 2008 the Rocky Mountain Pavement Preservation Partnership (RMPPP) was formed as a consortium of government, industry and academic professionals with the goal of promoting the concept of preserving our valuable pavement infrastructure.
And the October 2010 annual meeting the RMPPP became the RMWPPP, expanding to all 13 western states, now including California, Hawaii, Nevada, Washington State, and Montana.
