Perpetual Pavements

The Asphalt Pavement Alliance has bestowed its national Perpetual Pavement Award on more than 80 pavements – all of them built before 1976, and many more than 50 years old.

These national awards are given to road-owning agencies for asphalt pavements that are at least 35 years old and have never had a structural failure. The average interval between resurfacing of each winning pavement must be no less than 13 years, and the road must demonstrate excellence in design, quality in construction and value for the traveling public.
