Eaton Asphalt Hosts Congressman Thomas Massie

Jurgensen-Family-with-Massie_asphalt_PaverOn Tuesday, September 24th, Eaton Asphalt Paving Company hosted Congressman Thomas Massie at their asphalt plant in Walton, KY. Among those in attendance for this asphalt plant, laboratory and fabrication shop tour were elected officials, consulting engineers and KYTC personnel.

Jason Jurgensen, President of Eaton Asphalt Paving Company, began the event by giving an overview of the company and its operations. The tour began inside the fabrication/maintenance shop where employees were welding, painting, fixing and servicing equipment and machinery. Next, the tour moved outdoors to view an asphalt paving demonstration. Following the paving demo, the next stop was a walking tour of the lab and asphalt plant. This was a great opportunity for everyone to see the mix design process from the laboratory to the loading of the dump truck. After the lab and asphalt plant tour, PAIKY Executive Director Brian Wood provided some comments about the state of the asphalt industry.

The event concluded with some comments from Congressman Massie. He spoke about his experience as a Lewis County Judge Executive and how it has helped him to better understand the local issues as it relates to the national perspective. He also explained how he wanted to be a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee which benefits everyone in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
