Hales Sand & Gravel, a Staker Parson company, won two National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) Quality in Construction Awards for asphalt pavement.

One award was for working safely in rough weather to successfully produce a smooth, high quality pavement using cold-in-place recycling on U.S. 50 in Millard County, Utah. The company also won an award for a mill and overlay project on approximately 7 miles of SR 132 in Sanpete County, Utah, which included a lane-level overlay, pedestrian ramps, and curb and gutter. The project also won incentives for smoothness, mix properties, and density.

“I am extremely proud of my team members for their hard work and for putting safety first while completing each project,” said Jeff Collard, Hales Sand & Gravel General Manager, in a press release. “They kept safety and quality as their top priority.”

“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public,” said Dan Gallagher, 2017 NAPA Chairman, in the press release. “All contractors’ projects earning a Quality in Construction award are measured against best practices designed to live up to that commitment. Earning the Quality in Construction Award demonstrates that Hales Sand & Gravel has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
