APAC Shears, a CRH company, received the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s (NAPA) Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction Award for its U.S. 160 mill and overlay project in Meade and Clark counties in Kansas, KSCB News reports.
The award recognizes asphalt pavement projects that use less than 50,000 tons of asphalt.
Pavement engineers from the National Center for Asphalt Testing (NCAT) test the nominated projects for volumetric quality, density, gradation, and for being at or below air void targets. The top 10 projects receive the award.
APAC Shears completed the $1.4 million U.S. 160 project in June 2018. It extends 17 miles from the U.S. 160/54 jct. in Meade County to the U.S. 160/283 jct. in Clark County.
“A Kansas asphalt contractor achieving this award is testimony of the high-quality work performed by our producer members,” says Dan Scherschligt, executive director of the Kansas Asphalt Pavement Association.
