In the month of September, the Bureau of Street Services was visited by an Egyptian Delegation called the "Ministry of Military Production." Their goal was to use the BSS as a model to implement a Pavement Preservation program in their own country. After a morning seminar with the BSS executive staff, Board of Public Works Commissioner Kevin James, and Greg Good from the Mayor's Office, the delegation visited field crews with a focus on slurry seal applications and Cold In Place Recycling. They also visited the Department of General Service's Standards Division to learn about material testing and tools required to perform these tests. Members of this delegation team were very profesional and it was an honor and pleasure to have them visit the City of Los Angeles.
