The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) has presented its Lifetime Pavement Recognition Award to a 70-year old section of concrete pavement on California's Interstate 10 (Ontario to Colton Freeway).

The award was presented to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 8. Accepting the award on behalf of Caltrans District 8 were Jian (James) Lan, P.E., senior transportation engineer, and Kevin H. Chen, P.E., transportation engineer.

The concrete pavement built in 1947 along this 10-mile section, originally designated US 70-99, is still in use today and has survived the unrelenting forces of traffic and time.

In 1967, this pavement became an historic section as the first concrete pavement in the nation to receive a revolutionary new process called diamond-grinding. Today, diamond-grinding is a widely accepted and time-tested technology that is commonly used around the world.

Thanks to the innovative and forward-thinking spirit of CALTRANS and the local paving industry, this concrete pavement continues to serve California's Inland Empire, while linking the past, present and future of concrete highways.

Awarded annually since 1994, this award is presented to the agency owner of an in-service concrete pavement that has demonstrated exceptional performance and service to its local community, state, and users. This recognition rotates annually between public market segments: highway, street/road and airport.
