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.
Founded in 1963, The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) is the world’s largest trade association that exclusively represents the interests of those involved with the design, construction, and preservation of concrete pavements.

JCP is an easy to design solution that can deliver over 50 years of successful service life.
Dowel bars are used in pavements to withstand heavy loads and high traffic volumes with minimal joint faulting.
JCP is a proven cost-effective pavement for long lasting highways and roads.
CRCP is the long-term proven performer for paving. The longevity of properly designed systems is measured in decades not years.
CRCP service life is on the order of tens of millions of equivalent load repetitions with no repairs required, allowing agencies to reconstruct critical corridors and then stay out of the way.
CRCP pavements with their strengthened design stay smooth for decades, longer than any other pavement system.
RCC is often a great choice for industrial applications such as warehouse parking and freight terminal applications.
RCC is often used at rail yards, container ports and facilities with massive overhead cranes lifting multimodal containers.
RCC is increasingly becoming a chosen solution for cost effective streets, roads and highway shoulders.
Concrete overlays can extend a road or highway’s life for up to 40 years.
Concrete overlays can be used for streets, roads and highways in urban areas as well as in suburban and rural areas.
Concrete overlays are extremely durable and require little to no maintenance, ideal for budget driven road projects.
Pre-Cast roadway panels are ideal as they can be manufactured in the controlled environment of a pre-cast concrete plant and then brought to a project.
Pre-Cast panels are lowered into place and secured. This method is less prone to delays from poor weather conditions.
Since panels are made ahead of time, proper planning for sewer, manholes, etc, must be complete and precise.
