QSG23-Eaton-IR471

Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Eaton Asphalt Paving Co. Inc. of Walton, Ky., has won a 2013 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at a ceremony during the association’s 59th Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Fla.

“As an industry, asphalt pavement producers have devoted a great deal of time and effort to determining the best practices necessary to construct long-lasting, high-quality asphalt pavements that offer the durable performance pavement owners and the public value. The Quality in Construction Awards compare nominated pavements against best practices and standards, and honor those that exemplify excellence in construction standards, such as the project completed by Eaton Asphalt Paving Co. Inc.,” stated John J. Keating, 2013 Chairman of the NAPA Board of Directors.

Eaton Asphalt Paving Co. won the award for its work on Interstate 471 in Campbell County, Kentucky. The 5.7-mile stretch of work involved pavement removal, 12-inch subgrade stabilization with cement, a new underdrain system, and a new pavement section containing 4 inches of dense-grade asphalt and 19.75 inches of asphalt pavement. Depending on the mix, 20–30 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement was used. In addition, all driving lanes, shoulders, and ramps were replaced on the road, which is heavily used by commuters headed to downtown Cincinnati via Interstate 275. The northbound lanes were completed during the 2012 season and the southbound lanes in 2013. Both sides were completed earlier than expected and surpassed Kentucky Transportation Cabinet standards.
