Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Louisville Paving & Construction Co. of Louisville, Ky., has won a 2014 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, Jan. 28, at a ceremony during the association’s 60th Annual Meeting in Marco Island, Fla.

“Quality pavements are something every road builder strives to construct. We want to build pavements that deliver on the promise of high performance and drivability for the public,” said William C. Ensor III, NAPA 2014 Chairman. “Projects that earn a Quality in Construction Award have been measured against industry best practices designed to live up to that promise. I’m proud to say that, in earning a 2014 QIC Award, Louisville Paving & Construction Co. has met or exceeded these rigorous quality standards.”

Louisville Paving & Construction Co. won the award for its work on I-64/Louisville Lexington Road in Shelby County. The three-phase project included reconstruction and widening of the original four-lane interstate to six lanes and bridge reconstruction. The project required multiple lane and traffic changes. Partnering with other subcontractors, Louisville Paving & Construction Co. met a tight schedule and produced a smooth-riding, quality asphalt pavement.
