Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced that Reeves Construction Co. of Augusta, Ga., has won a 2015 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on in January of 2016, at a ceremony during the association’s 61st Annual Meeting in La Quinta, Calif.
“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building quality pavements that deliver high performance and drivability to the public,” said Michael Cote, NAPA 2015 Chairman. “All contractor’s projects earning a Quality in Construction Award are measured against industry best practices designed to live up to our promise. I’m honored to say that, in earning a 2015 QIC Award, Reeves Construction Co. has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
Reeves Construction Co. won the award for its work on I-520 in Richmond County also known as the Bobby Jones Highway. The project consisted of the milling, inlay, and resurfacing of 6.1 miles of the interstate. The company incorporated sustainable paving practices, using reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) for the mixes, including ground rubber tire as a substitute for some of the asphalt cement, and using porous asphalt for the surface, which allows water to penetrate through the pavement into the soil below. Reeves Construction Co. followed best paving practices to produce a smooth asphalt pavement that showed a 54.6 percent improvement in ride quality.
