Section 39 Updates & More!

Sorry about the lack of posts lately but I'm hoping that some of our new website features will make up for it. As you may have already noticed, we've added three more tabs to the navigation bar on the website.  "Test Method Updates" is a page that compiles all of our posts regarding changes to test methods.
"Superpave" is a page that compiles all of our posts regarding Superpave.  

"Caltrans Section 39 Updates" is the new page that we're most proud of.  We've gone through all of the Revised Standard Specification (RSS) Updates since the inception of the Caltrans 2010 Specifications and created red-lined documents to make it easier for you to see the changes for each update.  The exciting thing is that we're utilizing Google Docs which allows you to add comments to any section of the document.  This will allow you to share your opinions on changes as they come out.  Quality in California will share your comments with industry committees and/or Caltrans to ensure that your voices are heard, even if you don't have time to attend a meeting yourself.  Please take advantage of this great tool and let us know if you have any problems using the software or any suggestions on how to make the website better.

We're excited to move the website towards being a comprehensive tool for you to use to communicate with other industry and government leaders in construction quality control.  Feel free to share any ideas or suggestions by email at

  1. Toni: Your blog is a tremendous public service and on behalf of the membership of the California Asphalt Pavement Association I commend you for doing it. The topics you present here have sparked many stimulating conversations at our technical committee meetings and in our ongoing dialogue with Caltrans.
