Asphalt Pavement Alliance Announces Winners of 2022 Perpetual Pavement Awards

KING COUNTY, WA — The Asphalt Pavement Alliance (APA) announces the winners of the Perpetual Pavement Awards (PPAs), which celebrate long-life asphalt pavements. For 2022, 11 PPAs: By Performance were earned. Engineers at the National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University evaluated the nominations and validated the results.

Since the program began in 2001, 181 pavements in 32 U.S. states have been honored with the award. PPAs: By Performance are awarded for high-performing asphalt pavements that are at least 35 years old, have not suffered a structural failure, and have an average interval between resurfacing of no less than 13 years. The pavement must demonstrate the characteristics expected from long life, Perpetual Pavement design, excellence in design, quality in construction, and value to taxpayers.

The 2022 PPA: By Performance winners in the Pacific Builder & Engineer area are:

  • Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) for a 72-year-old 2.7-mile section of State Route 2 in King County. (WSDOT's ninth PPA.)

"One key indicator of quality in construction is a smooth, long-life pavement," said Amy Miller, P.E., National Director of the APA. "Perpetual Pavements serve the community, reduce the money needed for maintenance, and conserve raw materials, ultimately leading to a truly sustainable structure that exemplifies the triple bottom line."
