2011 Quality in Asphalt Paving for SR 202 (J.T. Butler Boulevard)
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 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 its work on SR 202 (J.T. Butler Boulevard) from Kernan Boulevard to San Pablo Parkway.This partnering project consisted of constructing additional lanes along the inside and milling and resurfacing the existing roadway and connecting ramps. When heavy rains required the temporary milling and overlay of almost 75 percent of the existing roadway, Duval Asphalt Products had two crews working day and night around the clock until it was completed. The company worked mainly at night due to high traffic volumes, producing a smooth, high quality asphalt pavement.
