The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) has created a group of awards to recognize the role of concrete pavements in downtown development in the United States.

The Main Street USA awards will recognize projects in which concrete pavement was a key component in the increasingly popular development or redevelopment of downtown areas.

The award specifically cites technological enhancements, efficiency improvements, or exemplary service to an agency, contractor, or the concrete pavement industry at large.

The first two recipients are the city of Muskegon, MI, and the Urban Redevelopment Program in New Castle, PA.

The Main Street USA awards are among several additions to the ACPA’s Association Awards, which recognize distinguished service in a range of capacities.

ACPA also created the following awards in the Association awards category:

• ACPA Health, Safety & Environmental Award;

• ACPA Materials Product Supplier Award; and the

• ACPA Equipment Supplier Award.

The ACPA Association awards are one of two ways ACPA recognizes its members for outstanding effort. ACPA also presents its Excellence in Concrete Pavement Awards each year to honor projects that show outstanding work on street, road, airport and highway pavements.
