For over 30 years, the ACPA “Excellence in Concrete Pavement” awards have honored quality concrete pavements constructed in the United States and Canada. The awards program encourages high-quality workmanship in every concrete pavement project and serves as a forum for sharing information about highly successful projects.
The awards program recognizes contractors, engineers, and project owners who completed outstanding projects. Winning an Award for Excellence in Concrete Pavement provides the contractors, engineers, and owners with a level of prestige that can assist them in the development of future projects.
The American Concrete Pavement Association presents distinguished service awards in recognition of people and practices that represent the very best the transportation-construction community has to offer. The award program was established in 1968 when the Association’s first honoree was James W. Johnson, Iowa Highway Commission Testing Lab for invention of the slipform pavement machine. The program has grown into a tradition cherished by the organization, the honorees, and the industry.
