About the Paving Awards Program

The ACPA Annual Awards for Excellence in Concrete Pavement are designed to honor quality concrete pavements constructed in the United States and Canada each year. 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.

Judges will score all eligible projects and break any ties. Based on the judging results, two projets will be selected from each category to receive an award. A gold award will be given to the top scoring project in each category and a silver award to the second highest scoring project. Award winners will be notified they’ve won an award by email and letter, prior to the awards banquet. The award level (gold or silver) will be announced for the first time at the awards banquet.

2022 Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference

City of Stillwater Engineer, Monty Karns, discussing the details of a recent concrete overlay of one of the Stillwater’s intersections.

The 2022 Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference has concluded and by all measures was a huge success with over three hundred people in attendance. Secretary of Transportation, Tim Gatz, kicked off the meeting with updates on recent federal funding authorization for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s eight year plan and the commencement of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority’s Access Oklahoma program.

Although stormy weather prevented her from being there in person, ACPA’s new President & CEO, Laura Kaumo-O’Neil, was introduced to the crowd by an online appearance outlining ACPA’s vision for the future.

Many thanks to our exhibitors and sponsors for helping us make this event a success.
