Partners in Quality

TXAPA and its membership are dedicated to quality in the asphalt paving industry. In order to help promote quality asphalt pavements in Texas TXAPA facilitates "Partners in Quality” meetings between TxDOT districts and member firms. All 25 TxDOT districts participate in this program by holding a minimum of one Partners in Quality meeting each year. Some districts hold multiple meetings per year, and some hold additional meetings on an as needed basis.

Over the years various TxDOT Engineers that have participated in these meetings have written articles for TXAPA's quarterly publication "Texas Asphalt” in the Partners in Quality section. In their articles they explain what the Partners in Quality meetings entail and why they support this vital program. The articles in this section can also cover key messages that our partners wish to convey to the asphalt paving industry.
