The Asphalt Pavement Alliance developed the prestigious Perpetual Pavement awards to recognize long-life asphalt pavements in the U.S. and honor asphalt pavements demonstrating outstanding design and construction.
Many owners are recognizing the benefits associated with converting existing roads to perpetual ones. The APA will accept nominations for roads that have been converted to meet Perpetual Pavement design criteria. The nominations will be reviewed and approved by the National Center for Asphalt Technology and qualified projects will receive the Perpetual Pavement by Conversion award.
