EVV Regional Airport Runway Project Wins Accolades from APAI

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Our paving work on Runway 4-22 at Evansville Regional Airport has been recognized by the Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana (APAI) for superior asphalt pavement construction in the Airport category.

The Quality Pavement Award was presented by APAI representatives at their Annual Meeting in January.

APAI sends a professional engineer to visit and rate each project submitted for award consideration using the following criteria:

  • workmanship
  • degree of difficulty
  • use of green technologies

After the engineer’s review of each site, an APAI Quality Review Panel analyzed the recommendations for final award decisions.

“The APAI is happy to recognize J. H. Rudolph & Co. for its outstanding work in the asphalt paving industry,” commented William Knopf, APAI executive director.  J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Mulzer stated, “All of our projects are high priority, but with the Runway Improvement project, we were given the opportunity to showcase what we do best: lay top quality asphalt in the most efficient and effective manner possible.  We finished the project seven (7) days early, a feat that wouldn’t have been possible without our dedicated employees.  This project was definitely a win-win for everyone involved and we were thrilled to be a part of it.”
