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 State Route 13 at Cunningham Creek in Jacksonville, Fla. The company stabilized and reconstructed one section of road under the bridge, then milled and resurfaced the entire 5.6 miles of the project. It incorporated 20 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement into the mixes, a green paving technique that saves landfill space and reduces the use of new materials. Duval Asphalt Products produced a high-quality asphalt roadway for motorists traveling in the area.
