Asphalt Perpetual Pavements are the most sustainable pavement type, because the pavement’s structure lasts indefinitely. The road remains a permanent asset, one that our grandchildren’s grandchildren will be able to use. An asphalt Perpetual Pavement is infinitely reclaimable, reusable, and renewable.
The Asphalt Pavement Alliance has bestowed 69 Perpetual Pavement Awards since 2001. The first winner was the New Jersey Turnpike, one of the most heavily traveled highways in the country. Today, 59 years after the Turnpike opened, it’s still going strong, with no structural failures ever. It’s one of many Perpetual Pavements that have stood the test of time.
Think smart. Decide diligently. Perpetual Pavements make sense.
