The Asphalt Pavement Alliance (APA) has announced the winners of its 2007 Perpetual Pavement Awards. The award is given to owners of asphalt pavements that are at least 35 years old and have never had a structural failure. The average interval between resurfacing of each winning pavement must be no less than 13 years. The road must demonstrate the qualities expected from long-life asphalt pavements: excellence in design, quality in construction and value to the traveling public.
In Construction's region the winner is the South Carolina Department of Transportation for a section of Interstate 20 in Kershaw County between US Route 601 and US Route 521.
