Three paving crews and two plants kept the project moving all weekend over four consecutive weekends.
Idaho Materials and Construction (IMC) won a Quality in Construction Award for asphalt pavement from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) for its work on 1-84 in Canyon County.
“We were honored to receive this award,” Eric St. Pierre, Idaho Materials and Construction general manager, said. “It was an ultimate team approach between our employees, subcontractors and the state of Idaho.
“The fast track nature of this project helped to show the strength of our teams, as well as their ability to go above and beyond. All of the work was performed with zero incidents, even with the compressed schedule. I am extremely proud of our team and what they can accomplish.”
IMC successfully worked with Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) to minimize the effect on commuters while completing an 8-mi. mill and overlay project to repair roads that had been damaged due to a harsh winter. Three paving crews and two plants kept the project moving all weekend over four consecutive weekends.
“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public,” said Dan Gallagher, 2017 NAPA chairman, in a press release. “All contractors' projects earning a Quality in Construction award are measured against the best practices designed to live up to that commitment. Earning the Quality in Construction Award demonstrates that Idaho Materials and Construction has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
