NAPA Quality in Construction Awards 2020

March 4, 2021

The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) each year unveils its annual Quality in Construction Award winners. 

Though the ongoing global pandemic has removed NAPA’s ability to hold its annual meeting in person this year, the association has nevertheless retained the breadth and depth of its annual awards program.

As in years past, Roads & Bridges brings you a look at some of the winners. Though NAPA bestows these awards on a great many individual projects and contractors—more than 300 winners across multiple categories-—we have chosen the following as good examples of asphalt road building and rehabilitation success stories.

Of all winners, 2020 NAPA Chairman James Winford said, “The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public. All contractors’ projects earning a Quality in Construction Award are measured against best practices designed to live up to that commitment. Earning the Quality in Construction Award demonstrates that these contractors have met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
