National Award in Asphalt Paving for US 301/SR 73


Lanham, Md. — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that Reeves Construction Corp. of Macon, Georgia, won a 2017 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 63rd Annual Meeting in San Diego.

“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public. All contractors’ projects earning a Quality in Construction award are measured against best practices designed to live up to that commitment,” said 2017 NAPA Chairman Dan Gallagher. “Earning the Quality in Construction Award demonstrates that Reeves Construction has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”

Reeves Construction Corp. won the award for its work on US 301/SR 73, from milepost
14.86 to milepost 2.6 in Bulloch and Evans Counties. The project included 1 ½ inches of variable width milling with inlay. The company used sustainable paving techniques on the project, incorporating reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) from the millings back into the asphalt mix. It also used warm-mix asphalt paving technology, which reduces emissions and saves money. Reeves Construction Corp. achieved a 45 percent improvement in the road’s ride with its quality paving job.
