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 A1A Costal Highway in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Work included widening various areas of the roadway, constructing a 5-foot paved shoulder, and milling and resurfacing the existing pavement. The company incorporated green paving techniques into the project, using up to 25 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement in the mixes. This reduced the need for new materials in mixes and helped keep materials out of landfills. Duval Asphalt Products produced a smooth, high-quality pavement on this busy scenic road.
