The Colorado Asphalt Hall of Fame was established to recognize those persons from the Asphalt industry who have made significant contributions to the Asphalt industry and helped advance the use and quality of Asphalt Pavement in Colorado.

The nomination guidelines and criteria are available from this Link

To date there are 18 members who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. The initial group of men (pictured) inducted were instrumental in getting CAPA up and running in 1983. There was no blue print and no owner’s manual on how to launch an association.

If it wasn’t for their dedication and commitment to the industry, we wouldn’t be where we are today as an association or as an industry.
