The Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction Award recognizes the 10 highest-scoring projects submitted for a QIC Award in the General Paving (less than 50,000 tons) category.
“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 2022 NAPA Chairman of the Board James A. Mitchell.
The 2022 winners and their projects in the Michigan Contractor & Builder area are:
- Gerken Paving Inc. of Napoleon, Ohio, for MI 50 in Adrian, Michigan
- Payne & Dolan Inc., a Walbec Group Co., of Gladstone, Michigan, for MI 48 in Chippewa County, Michigan
Projects submitted for a QIC Award are evaluated by an independent pavement engineer who assigns each project a numerical score based on how well the contractor met specifications and achieved density on the finished pavement. All pavements that meet a specified benchmark earn the QIC Award. The Larry H. Lemon Award honors the 10 highest-scoring projects, as determined in the review.
