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

NAPA held its annual meeting in person this year from Jan. 23-26 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

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—nearly 300 winners across multiple categories-—we have chosen the following as good examples of asphalt road building and rehabilitation success stories. We specifically wanted to highlight some of the winners with the “Green” project designation to draw attention to sustainable projects.

“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,” 2021 NAPA Chairman James Winford said of the winners.
