ACPA recognizes ‘Excellence in Concrete Pavement’
In all, 30 judges contributed many hours to judging the nominees this year.
ACPA presents awards in both gold and silver levels. Judging is based on a point system, with independent judges awarding points for quality construction, addressing unique and unusual challenges, innovation, traffic management, and other criteria.
In the case of ties, award judges present “co-winners.”
ACPA proudly presents the 21st annual “Excellence in Concrete Pavement” to the winners in the following categories:
Commercial Service & Military Airports
(GOLD) Project: Third Parallel Runway Phase II – Paving and Lighting Package, Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, Charlotte, N.C.
Contractor: Hi-Way Paving, Inc.

This high-profile $69.6 million project at the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport was finished on time, within budget, and within specification.
