ACPA Names Award Recipients
January 3, 2008

The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) named the recipients of the 18th Annual “Excellence in Concrete Pavement Awards”, the concrete pavement industry’s highest-order and most prestigious recognition of quality. The Awards recognize the contractors, engineers, and owners whose efforts yielded the best pavements in airports, highways, and street and road applications in 2006, as determined by an independent panel of judges. The awards program cites Gold- and Silver-level projects for quality, efficiency, smoothness, reduced costs, and for minimizing road-user delays.

The Gold Winner Award for Commercial Service & Military Airports was presented to (contractor) Hi-Way Paving, Inc. and (owner/engineer) U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Primary Taxiway and East Parking Apron Pavement Replacement at Langley Air Force Base, Va.

The U.S. Air Force awarded Hi-Way Paving, Inc. the rare and prestigious 1st Civil Engineer Squadron Coin for outstanding performance and timely completion on this project. Hi-Way Paving, Inc. initiated and implemented a rephrasing plan to complete the project at this high-profile military facility with a high-quality concrete pavement.

The plan eliminated two phases of work, allowing the contractor to complete the work under a nonnegotiable 60-day timeframe.

The contractor also worked closely with the Corps of Engineers and the Air Force, using a fast-track approach, to construct an additional 30,000 sq. yds. of apron area within the project schedule, a key reason for the overall success of the project. The 17.8’ taxiway pavement and 17’ apron pavement constructed on this project are of the highest quality and appearance, and all pavements met or exceeded contractual specifications.
