The CO/WY Chapter of ACPA presented their annual concrete pavement awards at the concrete pavement workshop on March 16, 2017, and the winning projects were recently published in the Colorado Public Works Journal.  Congratulations to the winners, and we hope to see many of you as national award winners in San Diego this November!

Excellence in Concrete Pavement Awards – Nominations Open

The Colorado/Wyoming Chapter of ACPA would like to invite you to submit nominations for the 2016 Excellence in Concrete Pavement Awards.

All project submittals must be completed online at http://www.acpa.org/acpa-excellence-in-concrete-paving-awards/, which is on the National ACPA website.  If you do not already have a login, you will need to register as a new user in the box labeled “Online Paving Awards Login.”  After registering you will be able to generate your submittal, upload pictures, and edit your submittal until the submission deadline.
