ACPA Names Lifetime Pavement Award Recipients

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.

ACPA Building Stronger Presence in Florida  

ACPA enjoyed a strong presence at the Florida Transportation Builders Association’s 2018 Construction Conference on Feb. 8 and 9.  The event was held in Orlando, Fla., and attracted more than 1,700 attendees. 

Leif Wathne discussed ACPA’s VISION 2040 initiative and announced the affiliation of the Florida Chapter-ACPA during his overview of national ACPA activities. Wathne highlighted the association’s technical and promotion objectives and major goals. Wathne also expressed the Association’s excitement and interest in becoming more involved with agencies and industry in Florida, then thanked local Association members for their support of the new chapter.

ACPA Vice Chairman Jim Mack (CEMEX) also spoke at the conference on jointing concrete pavements and how to make them work in intersection applications, a topic identified as a key learning objective of the Florida DOT for its growing concrete paving program.
