Last month, Construction Equipment senior editor Walt Moore investigated the new technologies in asphalt compaction. Encouraged by Federal transportation officials eager for this European technology to be applied here, equipment manufacturers have integrated intelligent compaction into their product lines. Now, demonstration projects have put the technology to the test.
ConstructionEquipment.com will host a free webcast event to explore the current state of demonstration efforts.
