The OAQI was developed in 2012 by the members of OAPA to emphasize its commitment to the quality of asphalt pavements being produced in Oklahoma. Adoption and required participation in this initiative was included in the bylaws of the association 2014. Producer and laydown members of the association participate in certification process every two years, similar to the Diamond Achievement Awards provided by the National Asphalt Pavement Association.
The OAQI emphasizes the best practices in the production and construction of asphalt pavements based on current industry research. The requirements are reviewed regularly to ensure that the best practices remain up to date. Some of the education provided throughout the year by OAPA is based off of the results of the OAQI results to ensure that our members have continued educational opportunities to perform at the highest levels in the industry.
Members must participate in the OAQI to qualify for our annual awards program. You can find more about our awards program here.
