Romero Honored by UDOT

Posted: Jun 21, 2017

Pedro Romero, faculty in Civil Engineering at the University of Utah was presented with the Utah Department of Transportation Trailblazer Award during the 2017 UDOT research meeting. The award was given in recognition of his contributions toward "excellence in transportation research." For years, Romero has been working with UDOT to improve the longevity of Utah's roads through better material specifications and testing procedures. Maintenance and construction of the transportation infrastructure are a significant part of UDOT's budget, thus improvements in the material specifications to extend the life of roads can result in millions of dollars saved every year.
