20┃ Colorado Public Works Journal INTRODUCTION Welcome to THE Road Ahead - Tom Peterson 2024 is a celebration year for CAPA as it marks the 30th Anniversary of the “Best in Colorado” Asphalt Pavement Awards. This program began in 1994 with awards for each of the initial six categories. Over the years, additional categories have been added, competition has increased significantly from across the state and as a result, the overall everyday quality of work in our industry continues to excel. Since the program began, over 1,100 projects have been nominated for consideration resulting in 337 “Best in Colorado” awards. We thank our forefathers for the heavy lifting and establishing a rock-solid mission of “advancing the use and quality of asphalt pavements in Colorado”. As you read on in the magazine this spring, you will see the 13 projects recognized by CAPA as the Best of the Best in 2023 along with those contractors who received recognition from CDOT for Plant production and Smoothness awards.
