US CONGRESSMAN TOURS ASPHALT PLANT
CONWAY, SC: On Tuesday, November 5th, The South Carolina Asphalt Pavement Association welcomed US Congressman Tom Rice, who met with employees of CR Jackson and members of the SC Asphalt Pavement Association at CR Jackson, Inc.’s Conway Asphalt Plant.
Representatives from the Asphalt Pavement Association discussed vital issues facing the industry and business community with Rice, who serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Issues discussed included environmental benefits of using asphalt, such as the use of RAP (Recycled Asphalt Pavement) and Recycled Asphalt Shingles (RAS) and the cost benefits of asphalt paving, which include speed of construction and smoothness which results in less fuel consumption and a quieter ride.
CR Jackson and Asphalt Pavement representatives walked Congressman Rice through the plant’s operations, the asphalt lab and plant control room.
SCAPA’s Executive Director Ashley Batson discussed the need for a six-year surface transportation bill with Congressman Rice in order to support South Carolina’s critical infrastructure needs.
A study of the South Carolina Asphalt Pavement Association contractor members showed that the economic impact made by this industry is over $1 Billion dollars to the state of South Carolina. Additionally, the industry supports over 4,500 jobs across the state.
The South Carolina Asphalt Pavement Association (SCAPA) is a non-profit trade association. Its members are comprised of asphalt producers and affiliated companies in South Carolina.
On behalf of the SCAPA Board of Directors, we would like to invite you to the SCAPA Fall Membership Dinner to be held at the Vista Room at Blue Marlin restaurant in Columbia, SC.
