During its 64th Annual Meeting, the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) will recognize Staker Parson Materials & Construction, a CRH company, for its work on SR 167 in Mountain Green and Huntsville, Utah, (Trappers Loop Project). It will receive the Quality in Construction Award, which is awarded to companies with a commitment to building high-quality, smooth, durable pavements for the driving public.

Parts of the pavement of SR 167 (Trappers Loop Road), which winds through a canyon, had reached the end of its lifecycle and needed renewal to help the Utah Department of Transportation’s (UDOT) meet its goals of optimizing mobility, preserving infrastructure, and zero crashes and fatalities. Staker Parson crews rehabilitated 11 miles of pavement and updated all of the guardrails. The crew overcame challenges posed by steep grades and several curves through effective coordination and hard work.

“Working with Staker Parson has been an excellent experience,” said UDOT Engineer PJ Roubinet, in a press release. “This project has improved safety through an updated guardrail and motorcycle rail and will serve the traveling public for years to come.”

“The crews achieved zero lost-time incidents on this project, which added to the 10 million hours of no lost-time incidents for the North Wasatch area spanning over the course of 14 years,” said Staker Parson Region VP Jake Goodliffe, in the press release. “This is a testament to the excellent team we have in Utah and the strong relationship we have with UDOT.”
