Tilcon Wins NAPA Quality in Construction Awards
Four Tilcon paving projects, completed in 2014, have been awarded Quality in Construction Awards by the National Asphalt Pavement Association. The awards were presented at NAPA's 60th Annual Meeting on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 in Marco Island, Florida.
'Quality pavements are something every road builder strives to construct. We want to build pavements that deliver on the promise of high performance and drivability for the public' said William C. Ensor III NAPA 2014 Chairman. 'Projects that earn a Quality in Construction Award have been measured against industry best practices designed to live up to that promise. I'm proud to say that in earning a 2014 QIC award, Tilcon has met or exceeded these rigorous quality standards.'
The four award-winning projects are:
Route 63 Bergen County
The three mile project traversed multiple jurisdictions and included multi-directional intersections, large retail areas and residential locations. To minimize inconvenience to the local community, all of the work was performed at night, during off-peak driving hours. Through proper planning and attention to detail, Tilcon New York was able to build an aesthetically pleasing roadway for the local neighborhood.
Passaic County Roads
The project consisted in milling and paving in six locations - winding country roads through rock cliffs and blind turns that included residential and multiple state recreational areas and extensive wildlife. Tilcon New York coordinated with area governments to produce smooth, high-quality asphalt pavements.'
County College of Morris Campus
Tilcon overlaid and milled various roads and parking lots to serve more than 8,000 students who attend the college. Coordinating, scheduling and controlling traffic were the biggest challenges and Tilcon worked through them all to produce high quality asphalt pavements.
Newark Liberty International Airport Taxiway P
Tilcon milled and paved the existing taxiway, built two new high speed taxiways, upgraded the existing electrical system and remediated ponding problems. Working mostly at night and on weekends, in a high-security area, Tilcon produced a high quality pavement for the airport.
