West Contracting completed the project for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) last year. It consisted of widening, repairing and resurfacing approximately nine miles of Route 30.

West Contracting used a new paving technology for the first time in this area. A thin layer of Superpave asphalt was bonded to the existing concrete surface using a polymer modified emulsion and a “spray paver” machine. This “Bondtek” technology allows MoDOT to install thinner layers of asphalt over concrete surfaces. The polymers ensure a strong bond to the pavement that limits future repairs.

The award was presented at MAPA’s annual conference on Jan. 15, 2013. The award was one of three given at the conference attended by contractors from across the state.
