During the epoxy injection demonstration, attendees will be able to observe the entire process, including deck preparation, equipment preparation, injection process, clean-up, and other processes. In addition, representatives from the Iowa DOT central and districts offices, along with Iowa State University staff, will be available to answer questions.

In addition, provide a good email address at which a "rescheduling" communication may be sent if weather requires a shift in the date to the rain date noted.
