Distinguished Service Awards
About | Nominations |Presentations|Past Winners
The American Concrete Pavement Association presents distinguished service awards in recognition of people and practices that represent the very best the transportation-construction community has to offer. The award program was established in 1968 when the Association's first honoree was James W. Johnson, Iowa Highway Commission Testing Lab for invention of the slip form paver. The program has grown into a tradition cherished by the organization, the honorees, and the industry.
Collectively, these awards and recognitions honor the commitment, focus, and accomplishments of the most forward thinking, innovative, and determined professionals in the transportation community, as well as the quality highways, airports, and streets and roads they build and rehabilitate.
Sustainable practices also are honored with a special award. These best practices in sustainable pavement construction, preservation, and rehabilitation are those which serve as a model throughout the transportation-construction community.
The online submital period for ACPA’s Distinguished Service Awards for 2013 has passed. Thank you to everyone who spent time submitting a nomination. The submittals were remarkable this year. Award winners will be honored at the 50th Annual Meeting. More details follow this section.
The nomination system will reopen in July 2014 for next year's program.
The awards will be presented to the recipients at the Association's 50th Annual Meeting at the Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa, a Wyndham Grand Resort, located in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. The 50th annual meeting will be held December 3 through 6, 2013. For more information, contact Jerry Voigt, P.E., ACPA President & CEO.
