More than 90% of roads and highways, along with 80% of airfields, are surfaced with asphalt pavements. We’re actively invested in every community, facilitating connection and commerce.

As the industry’s national voice, NAPA works with Congress, the Administration, Departments of Transportation, and numerous other stakeholders and partners to engineer smooth, safe, long-lasting roads. Together, let’s leverage the country’s historic investment in infrastructure to keep the momentum going.
