Established in 1977, the Asphalt Paving Awards Program is a cooperative effort between the Asphalt Pavement Association of Michigan (APAM) and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to recognize excellence in asphalt pavement construction. This prestigious honor is given only to projects built with the utmost quality and attention to detail. Further, it acknowledges all the hardworking men and women that took part in the design, construction, inspection and management of the project as well as the pavement owner.

Each December, APAM hosts an Awards Banquet in Lansing to honor all of the award winners. To attend the banquet, please register through Events page on the APAM website.
