SOLUTIONS FOR THE FUTURE
Essential for commerce and community, asphalt pavements connect not just our transportation network but us to the people that matter most. For this reason, asphalt engineers are constantly innovating to ensure we deliver on road safety, smoothness, and performance at a cost that meets the demands for today, tomorrow, and the future.
Since 2001, the APA’s Perpetual Pavement Award program has recognized 170 long-life pavements in 32 U.S. states and one Canadian province. The winning pavements range in age from 35 years to 91 years, and the pavements average 49.42 years old at the time of recognition.
Did you know? Existing asphalt pavements contain the raw materials for new roads. Rarely replaced, asphalt pavements are simply repaired or recycled. The salvage value of reclaimed asphalt pavement is 418% more than concrete even after years of service. Asphalt delivers dependability for our future.
