Executive Director Message - April 2016

Opportunities to Educate: Important Changes to the APWA Asphalt Specifications

Dear Friends of UAPA:

As many of you know, over the course of past year the Utah Asphalt Pavement Association (UAPA) worked closely with the Utah Chapter of the APWA to make some important changes to the APWA specifications. With the 2016 season upon us, it is important to understand the significance of these changes and how they affect owners, cities, counties, contractors, and our general industry moving forward. Indeed, these changes will affect mix designs, bidding, and the construction of asphalt pavements under the APWA specifications.  
To help educate as many entities as possible and as a free courtesy, UAPA will come to your organization and visit with you about these changes and their impact. This invitation is open to all cities, counties, contractors, and others that have an interest in the specification changes. To schedule a time for a visit, please feel free to reach out to me ( or (801) 916-2426) and we will be happy to take the time to come to you to chat about what has changed and what it means for you as someone engaged in industry here in Utah.  
As always, thanks for all the good you do in Utah to help build and preserve some of the best roads in the entire country. We believe these recent changes will only help to improve our position as one of the best. Please do not hesitate to take the association up on this free offer to come to you and help educate you on these specifications and how they may help you.

Best regards,
