May 2015 – Award-winning National Highway Institute instructor for the Federal Highways Administration, Blair Barnhardt was nominated as a Remarkable Expert by a popular Chicago radio show called “Remarkable Radio”, which spotlights noteworthy Experts, People, Places, and Things from around the globe. He was called on the show to share insights on how State DOTs, Cities, Counties, and Private Sector Owners can save millions of dollars collectively each year with his pavement management system.
As an expert pavement manager, Blair has traveled extensively across this Great Country to teach their clients and learners what to actually do correctly with their crumbling roads after they have heard, “It depends…” Chicago radio show host, Mark Imperial asked Blair to share more information about what they do.
“Everything we do leads to engineers across the world learning how to do more with less so that they can save their agencies millions of dollars all the while going green with their rehabilitation and preservation efforts,” said Blair Barnhardt. “In fact if 50 agencies in 50 states with 250 miles of roadways simply implemented our plan, we could collectively save America 2.5 billion dollars this year alone!”
The city and county engineers Blair has influenced with his training efforts typically do twice as many roads for their municipality each year with the same amount of money. They often spend as little as 2 to 3 cents per square yard to implement The Three Legged Stool™ System of Pavement Management and go on to save upwards of $10.00 per square yard by selecting the right treatment on the right road at the right time with the right contractor and for the right reason!
Blair Barnhardt has been helping individuals and businesses in a unique way and this is what they have to say about him:
Jon Heese, APM from Arapahoe County Colorado stated, “I read the Book on Better Roads and was among the first group to go through IPMA™ Academy. We have been working with Blair over the last two years and expect to wrap up a full network pavement management system implementation over the next few weeks. My involvement with IPMA™ has encouraged us to try proven treatments that are new to us, including an in-place pavement-recycling project we hope to do later this year. I believe agencies must become better stewards of our roadway assets and think that the IPMA™ Accredited Pavement Manager Certification is a good place to start.”
“Our County has a $1,000,000.00 budget per year. We are now doing twice as many roads for the same amount of money with the Three Legged Stool System™ of Pavement Management! Last year we saved 1.2 million dollars and this year we plan to save 1.4 million,” stated Darold Wiggins, APM, Public Works Director for Heard County, Georgia.
