Hinkle Contracting Co. Wins National Award For Quality in Asphalt Paving

Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Hinkle Contracting Co. LLC of Paris, 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 Hinkle Contracting Co.,” stated John J. Keating, 2013 Chairman of the NAPA Board of Directors.

Hinkle Contracting Co. won the award for its work on Interstate 64 in Rowan County, Kentucky. The 3.5-mile mill-and-overlay project consisted of repairs to the east- and westbound lanes to repair the overall ride quality of the pavement. The company milled off the surface, performed inlay work for areas experiencing base failures, and overlayed the suface with 1.5 inches of asphalt. Hinkle Contracting used reclaimed asphalt pavement in the mix to reduce costs and limit the amount of virgin aggregate and binder on the project. The final pavement was smooth with excellent quality assurance results.
