FRANKLIN — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced today that R&D Paving Inc. of Franklin has won a 2013 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at a ceremony during the association's 59th Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Fla.
"As an industry, asphalt pavement producers have devoted a great deal of time and effort to determining the best practices necessary to construct long-lasting, high-quality asphalt pavements that offer the durable performance pavement owners and the public value. The Quality in Construction Awards compare nominated pavements against best practices and standards, and honor those that exemplify excellence in construction standards, such as the project completed by R&D Paving Inc.," stated John J. Keating, 2013 Chairman of the NAPA Board of Directors.
R&D Paving Inc. won the award for its work on the runway at Parlin Field Airport in Newport. Before work began, 46 percent of the runway was deemed to be in poor condition. Three crews helped eliminate cracks, remove debris, and smooth uneven runway surfaces. The first crew repaired cracks, placing geotextile fabric on the ones needing major repair. The second crew excavated sections of failed pavement, recompacted the subgrade, and replaced the base course prior to paving. The third crew expanded the runway's north turnaround to better accommodate low-wing aircraft. A leveling course was placed prior to the final overlay. The entire project was deemed a success for the local community.
