New Communication Tool Available
www.DriveAsphalt.org
NAPA launched a new website, DriveAsphalt.org. The site aims to provide information to road owners about the superior performance of asphalt pavements.  The website can be a helpful tool for meetings with DOT, public works, and tollway officials. In the upcoming months, the site will be enhanced and expanded into a full resource for pavement designers seeking information about asphalt pavements.
