The Asphalt Pavement Alliance (APA) and its Core Partners are experts in design, construction, and maintenance of asphalt pavements. To help ensure that the highest quality asphalt pavements are built across the United States’ 2.2 million miles of paved roads, the Alliance provides many free tools that have been developed for engineers and owners and are focused on proper pavement design, latest asphalt paving specifications, best practices, and news.
The APA also shares its Core Partner’s education and training opportunities, exhibits at tradeshows, and serves as a resource to engineers and owners on behalf of the asphalt industry. Learn more about our upcoming events.

In response to the need for rapid pavement replacement at a Home Depot facility, Gallagher Asphalt Corporation executed and expedited an asphalt project. The task involved the removal of existing 5” Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) and 7” of aggregate, replaced by a robust 12” asphalt section composed of N90 binder (10”) and N80 surface (2”). The project's distinct challenge was to complete the entire process within a strict 37-hour timeline, emphasizing the priority of opening the dock doors for incoming shipments by noon on Sunday.
Parking lots are the gateway to which all employees, customers, and visitors view upon arrival. As a first impression, it's important to welcome pedestrians with a well-maintained, smooth parking lot. Asphalt parking lots are the superior material of choice for parking lots due to their speed of construction, sustainability, and cost. When designing an asphalt parking lot important considerations are: traffic, subgrade, and drainage.
Asphalt pavements are quick to construct and easy to maintain, which means safe, smooth surfaces with fewer delays for drivers.
