J.H. Rudolph and Co., Inc. announced today that 2013 asphalt paving projects on US 41 (Strip) and US 60 each won a Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA). NAPA presented the award to J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. in Mid-February during the organization’s 59th Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Florida.
J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. won the awards for outstanding mill and overlay work on both projects. They were completed in October of 2013. J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, District 2, worked hand in hand to keep traffic interruptions to a minimum on both of these highly congested, commercially zoned areas.
The Quality in Construction Award from NAPA recognizes exemplary asphalt pavements across the nation and defines excellence in asphalt pavement construction by requiring quality control and engineering data to determine award winners. Other significant factors used in judging include smoothness, rideability and public comment.
“We are very pleased that our partnership with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet on these projects resulted in recognition at a national level. Paving on these highly congested road ways had the potential to create many issues for the travelling public and businesses located on the routes, however, we were able to work with KYTC to schedule working at night, keeping disruptions to a minimum,” commented Chris Foster, Construction Manager at J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. “It is our goal to deliver this same caliber of high quality to every project we complete so the travelling public can experience it on all the roads we pave.”
