Welcome to the Center for Georgia Aggregates Research (CGAR). CGAR was established in 2010 and serves
the industry and state DOT as a forum for research, consulting, and discussion where
civil, construction, pavement and geotechnical engineering stakeholders can seek answers.
The center’s mission is enhanced by the active participation of state DOT and federal
agency representatives in formulating our research and consulting programs, and overseeing
its accomplishment. Through seminar, research and consulting reports, and newsletters,
CGAR is putting the most practical and state-of-art technology into the hands of aggregate
industry, state and federal agencies, ensuring that the resources are used in the
most efficient manner.
