OK, Oklahoma

Oklahoma Joins the Slipform Paving Development …

Slipform Paving was first born in Iowa in about 1946 by two men by the names of Jim Allen and Bert Myers of the Iowa State Highway Commission Materials and Testing Laboratory. They started off experimenting and created a slipform pavement that was 3” thick and 18” wide. They continued their research and testing for many years, then in 1949 they developed a real road with two adjacent lanes each measuring 6” thick and 10ft. wide.
Slipform Paving

By 1964 over 4000 miles of slipform pavement has been laid across the US. However most of these 4000 miles of slipform paving were confined to Oklahoma, Iowa, Colorado and California. Records show that 75% of these 4000 miles were on secondary highways and the rest was used on Interstate highways.

The state of Oklahoma joined on the slipform paving bandwagon by about 1958 when the Oklahoma Turnpike Commission showed that slipform paving had actually saved the state 35 to 45 cents per square meter on the cost of concrete pavements. This was quite a significant savings for that economic period in Oklahoma.

Slipform Paving Slipform soon gained the reputation for being better, faster and cheaper, this was a trifecta for the highway’s engineers. Even with this great reputation the traditional formwork paving was not displaced until about 30 years later. Many other states were hesitant to change the current method of paving their highways, whereas Iowa, Oklahoma, Colorado and California took on the challenge of a new method, slipform paving.

Slipform paving continues to a popular road paving method in the US and some say that it is a myth that a better technology will come about. This did not happen so easily though, for there was a lot of trial and error along with its implementation. State by state, each had to learn and make mistakes and fix them to really get it right.

As with any type of new technology some states or state agencies tend to take the lead and adopt such new methods, which was the case with Oklahoma, Iowa, Colorado and California with the adoption of slipform paving. It has been said that if The Technology Implementation Group (TIG) had existed back in 1958, slipform concrete paving would have definitely been picked for a promotion.

About Oklahoma, OK ...

Oklahoma is a state which is situated in the southern Great Plains. This state population exceeds over 3 million people. Oklahoma is also one of the six states situated on the frontier strip.The tourism department of Oklahoma tried to break it down into six countries by trying to divide it, instead they came up with 11 different regions with several different names.

Flag of Oklahoma

Oklahoma is home to some of the worlds most fierce thunderstorms throughout the whole world. This is because Oklahoma has winds of hot and cold air which conflict with the near by Rocky Mountains, which makes Oklahoma right in the middle acting as a tornado valley.

In 1995 Mr. Timothy Mc Veigh bombed the Alfred P federal building which killed 168 people. Oklahoma was in great shock after this cowardly act.
