Lindy Paving and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) won the National Asphalt Pavement Association‘s (NAPA) 2018 Sheldon G. Hayes Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement for paving work on Interstate 79 in Butler County, Pa.
Other finalists for the award were APAC-Central Inc., A CRH Co., and the Missouri Department of Transportation for work on Route 60 in Mansfield, Mo.; and S.T. Wooten Corp. and the North Carolina Department of Transportation for work on US 64 in Nash County, N.C.
The Sheldon G. Hayes Award winner and finalists are determined through a two-year evaluation process of highway pavement projects that use more than 50,000 tons of asphalt. The project must first win a Quality in Construction (QIC) Award, then a year later, it can be considered for the Sheldon G. Hayes Award. The top-ranked projects from each year are tested for smoothness, and then visually inspected by an independent pavement consultant.
“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building quality pavements that deliver high performance and drivability to the public,” said Craig Parker, NAPA 2018 Chairman, in a press release.
