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.

This $270 Million project, constructed in a joint venture by Granite Construction and Teichert, is the renovation of a 15.3 mile stretch of aged concrete pavement in Sacramento County, CA. The section runs from downtown Sacramento (American River Bridge) to 1.1 miles south of Elk Grove. Besides converting the existing pavement to a L-L/PP, other aspects, such as widened lanes, added HOV lanes, bridge work, median barrier, pedestrian crossing, and information systems were part of the contract. Both full-depth (FD) and the crack, seat, and overlay (CS&O) were utilized to create perpetual pavements.
There are three common approaches to incorporate climate change impacts into the decision-making process to help design, build, and maintain resilient pavements
Asphalt pavements are quick to construct and easy to maintain, which means safe, smooth surfaces with fewer delays for drivers.
