ACPA presented its Lifetime Pavement Recognition Award to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in recognition of a section of Virginia State Route 316. Accepting the award was Mike Davis, P.E., C.C.M., VDOT, Hampton Roads Deputy District Engineer for Construction and Engineering.

With only minimal maintenance, State Route 316 (Greenbush Road) has served the communities of Accomack County, Virginia, for about eight decades.

This exceptional pavement has far exceeded its original design life and exhibits the durability and performance for which concrete pavement specifiers strive.

“This highway is not only an important travel route for local communities but is an excellent example of the longevity that has become one of the greatest values and true hallmarks of concrete pavement,” says Gerald F. Voigt, P.E., ACPA President & CEO.

Awarded selectively since 1994, this special recognition is presented to the agency owner of an in-service concrete pavement that has demonstrated exceptional performance and service to its local community, state and users. (This recognition rotates annually among public market segments: highway, street and airports.)
