HB 1002 Moves to Indiana Senate

Monday, February 27th, 2017

We would like to thank the Indiana State House of Representatives for their bold plan to improve Indiana’s Interstates, bridges, roads and streets.  Increased state and local funding will improve the lives of every Hoosier and keep Indiana the Crossroads of America.

As House Bill 1002 moves to the Indiana Senate, we hope that its fair, user pays based approach continues to get support and the bill is able to move to the Governor for his signature.  J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. would like to extend a genuine thank you to all the Area Representatives who supported this bill and have put Indiana’s drivers and truckers at the top of their agenda.

We’re not quite ready to get things started up, but we are looking forward to starting work on US 60 in Henderson, KY. We’ll be placing base, intermediate and surface on a newly widened stretch of the road from KY 425 to a mile south. Our Green River Road Asphalt Plant will be churning out the asphalt needed to complete this project as soon as we can get started.

J.H. Rudolph Receives National Award for EVV Airport Project

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. was recently awarded a 2014 Quality in Construction Award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement for work done on Runway 4-22 at Evansville Regional Airport last summer.  “Quality pavements are something every road builder strives to construct. We want to build pavements that deliver on the promise of high performance and drivability for the public,” said William C. Ensor III, NAPA 2014 Chairman. “Projects that earn a Quality in Construction Award have been measured against industry best practices designed to live up to that promise. I’m proud to say that, in earning a 2014 QIC Award, J.H. Rudolph & Co. Inc. has met or exceeded these rigorous quality standards.”

Aerial Long Shot_May 30 2014Work on Runway 4-22 included rehabilitation, reconstruction and new construction, as well as green paving techniques incorporating 25 percent recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) into the base and intermediate mixes. A compact, smooth pavement was achieved on the runway seven (7) days ahead of schedule by paving with multiple laydown techniques and employing strict quality control. “Each 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,” commented J.H. Rudolph & Co. Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Mulzer.  “We finished the project seven (7) days early, a feat that wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of our dedicated employees.  This project was definitely a win-win for everyone involved and we were thrilled to be a part of it.”

The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) is the only trade association that exclusively represents the interests of the asphalt producer/contractor on the national level with Congress, government agencies, and other national trade and business organizations. NAPA supports an active research program designed to improve the quality of asphalt pavements and paving techniques used in the construction of roads, streets, highways, parking lots, airports, and environmental and recreational facilities. The association provides technical, educational, and marketing materials and information to its members; supplies product information to users and specifiers of paving materials; and conducts training courses. The association, which counts more than 1,100 companies as members, was founded in 1955.

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.

“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.”
