TXAPA/TxDOT Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards Committee
Glen Dvorak, Hunter Industries, Ltd. – Co-chair
David Stephens, TxDOT – Co-chair
John Crowdy, Vulcan Materials, Co. – Board Member
Chuck Fuller, TXAPA Staff
TXAPA/TxDOT Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards Committee was yet another committee to see a new leader in 2019. Chair Glen Dvorak
of Hunter Industries, Ltd. came prepared with a plan to work with committee members to update and improve the awards process.
First, the committee updated the schedule with milestones for nominations, first and second round evaluations, and selection of
the award winners. Proposed calendar periods were established for each milestone and meeting dates were set for each of the
milestones to ensure an overall structure was maintained. Next, the committee reviewed current TxDOT design practices for overlay
projects to determine if the categories were appropriate. The Committee also considered the increased number of TxDOT projects with
a final riding surface of asphalt pavement. As a result, the categories were expanded to two Divisions and 10 categories. Finally, the
committee reviewed the guidelines for evaluating appearance. The procedure required two stops in each direction for an evaluation
of 100 feet in each direction at each stop. The committee agreed it was too subjective and not representative of the entire project. The
evaluation process for appearance was changed to consider the entire project, and now requires evaluator comments which can be
reviewed to gain a better understanding of the evaluation.
