“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 Hamilton-Hinkle Paving Co.,” stated John J.

Hamilton-Hinkle Paving Co. won the award for its work on Interstate 75 in Scott County, Kentucky.

Also included in the project were repairs to three bridges, 12 exit/merge ramps, two major interchanges, two rest areas, and a weigh station. The base asphalt mix included 18 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement, and the surface mixes contained 20 percent RAP, which helped to preserve raw materials. The job required good communication with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, other government agencies, and local businesses.
