2010 Quality in Construction for Knight Boxx Road
Lanham, MD – The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Duval Asphalt Products Inc. of Jacksonville, Fla., has won a 2010 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, February 9, at a special awards breakfast during the Association’s 56th Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla.
The Quality in Construction Awards recognize asphalt pavements of excellence. “NAPA selects the recipients of its paving awards using a known set of standards that have been shown to give a good result,” commented Larry H. Lemon, 2010 Chairman of the NAPA Board of Directors. “This award demonstrates the high quality of work that the asphalt industry is achieving.”
Duval Asphalt Products won the award for the mill and overlay of Knight Boxx Road from Blanding Boulevard to C.R. 220 in Clay County. The existing roadway was severely rutted and cracked due to water intrusion into the underlying base and subgrade. The company milled two inches from the existing pavement and resurfaced it with a two-inch lift of Superpave asphalt mix, matching existing curb and gutter. Working under traffic, Duval Asphalt Products produced a greatly improved, smoother road for motorists to enjoy.
