2013 Quality in Construction for SR A1A Coastal Highway, Palm Coast, FL
Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Duval Asphalt Products Inc. of Jacksonville, Fla., has won a 2013 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at a ceremony during the association’s 59th Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Fla.
“As an industry, asphalt pavement producers have devoted a great deal of time and effort to determining the best practices necessary to construct long-lasting, high-quality asphalt pavements that offer the durable performance pavement owners and the public value. The Quality in Construction Awards compare nominated pavements against best practices and standards, and honor those that exemplify excellence in construction standards, such as the project completed by Duval Asphalt Products Inc.,” stated John J. Keating, 2013 Chairman of the NAPA Board of Directors.
Duval Asphalt Products Inc. won the award for its work on the A1A Coastal Highway in Palm Coast, Fla. The mill-and-overlay project contained five areas that required overbuild to correct the cross slope and/or raise the elevation. It was challenging to maintain the temperature of the asphalt mix with an average travel distance of 55 miles from the asphalt plant to the job site, but a material-transfer vehicle was used to control any segregation connected to the long haul distance.
