Bureau of Technical Services recognized for efforts towards achieving pavement performance
Madison – The Wisconsin Asphalt Pavement Association (WAPA) announced today that the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Bureau of Technical Services (BTS) was the recipient of the 2021 State Award for advancing innovation in asphalt pavements. BTS was recognized at a ceremony during the association’s 62nd Annual Conference in Wisconsin Dells.
In 2012, a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) review revealed several challenges in Wisconsin’s Quality Assurance Program. Since then, BTS has addressed these issues with a hands on approach and made significant improvements to pavement performance in the process.
The timeline below provides a visual representation of the efforts BTS has made since 2013. The list is long and illustrates years of hard work to achieve lasting change for the state of Wisconsin.
“We commend the department for incorporating quality control measures into their program to ensure long-term pavement performance,” said Brandon Strand, Executive Director for WAPA. “The road to success is always under construction and we are proud of the partnership we have with the department because we can do great things when we work together,” Strand concluded.
