TxDOT / TXAPA Quality Pavement Awards Program

The TxDOT / TXAPA Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards Program is an awards program that was developed to recognize Quality Asphalt Paving Projects. Furthermore the program recognizes quality methods and practices, people dedicated to quality, and Partners in Quality Attitude. The program recognizes both field personnel and management. TxDOT and TXAPA members can nominate projects in one of eight categories. The evaluation process is a two tier process in which individuals from TxDOT and TXAPA membership evaluate the projects, and then the winners are determined by the TxDOT/TXAPA Awards Committee based off of these evaluations.

In the first seventeen years of its existence approximately 626 projects have been nominated with approximately 113 projects receiving awards. In 2014, 63 projects in 18 TxDOT Districts from 20 TXAPA members were nominated. 18 projects made it to the second round evaluations.
