Concrete paving contractors are placing more and more overlays--a repair option once dominated by the asphalt paving industry. Of the record 26 winners and finalists in 12 categories in the 2000 National Awards Program for Excellence in Concrete Pavement, more than one-fourth of the projects involved whitetopping of asphalt or concrete pavements. Sponsored by the American Concrete Pavement Association and Concrete Construction, the awards recognize contractors, engineers, and owners who completed outstanding projects in 1999.
