On March 25, 2021, Juan Pablo Covarrubias Sr. was honored for his contributions to concrete pavement design with an online symposium. Twenty speakers summarized the history of concrete pavement design and research in Chile, the United States, and other countries, with a major emphasis on the role Covarrubias has had in inspiring his friends and colleagues to think differently. His work has led to thin concrete pavements, with superior durability and reduced economic and environmental costs relative to more conventional pavements.
