The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Louisville Paving & Construction Co. of Louisville, Ky., won a 2016 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award today at a ceremony during the association’s 62nd Annual Meeting in Orlando.

“The goal of every paving contractor is to build a high-quality road — a road that meets and exceeds stringent performance requirements,” said 2016 NAPA Chairman Kevin Kelly. “Earning a Quality in Construction Award shows a strong commitment to quality from a contractor who measures their project against industry best practices. In earning this Quality in Construction Award, Louisville Paving & Construction Co. has constructed a safe, quiet, smooth asphalt pavement.”

Louisville Paving & Construction Co. won the award for the resurfacing of the Springs Retail Association parking lot. The company worked at night and had each section completed and striped before the retail businesses opened each morning. It also used sustainable paving practices, incorporating 21 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) into mixes to reduce the use of virgin materials. Louisville Paving & Construction Co. produced a smooth, high-quality pavement with minimal inconvenience to shoppers.
