The TxDOT-TXAPA Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards Program is a joint effort of the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Asphalt Pavement Association. The program grants awards in three divisions, Dense Grade Specialty Mixes and Complexity Paving. Within the divisions are six categories: full-depth large, medium, and small, and overlay large, medium, and small.

For each award-winning project, the contractor, the TxDOT district, and the companies responsible for production and placement receive individual recognition.

The TxDOT-TXAPA Awards Committee consisting of both TxDOT and TXAPA members, is responsible for evaluating each nominated project and selecting the winners.
