Two exceptional concrete pavements have been recognized with ACPA’s Lifetime Pavement Award.
The City of Boulder, CO, was recognized with an award for a four-block section of Mapleton Avenue, a location of great importance to a vibrant city. Built in 1927, and with minimal maintenance since, the concrete pavement stands as an exceptional and durable example of concrete put to the test.
This historic section of pavement has contributed to economic development, including mining camps, the discovery of gold, and the growth of the University of Colorado.
Also recognized with an ACPA Pavement Longevity Award is Woodland Blvd. in DeLand, Fla. Presented to the Florida DOT, District 5, the concrete pavement designated as US 17/92 and Woodland Boulevard, extends the entire north-south length of the city. The concrete is in excellent condition as it approaches eight decades of service.
Built in 1939 and dedicated in 1940, the jointed-reinforced concrete pavement serves Stetson University and Florida DOT’s District 5 Headquarters, along with many other businesses in the city. This storied pavement plays an important role in the community, as the site of many parades and civic celebrations.
