West Contracting was recognized with a Quality Paving and Construction Award for a Primary Route (Less than 50,000 tons) project on I-44 at Antire Road in St. Louis County. They received 1st place for excellence in this category. Primary routes in this category must have less than 50,000 tons of asphalt paving which can include widening, overlay, full depth paving, new construction, or reconstruction.
Applications for Quality Paving and Construction Awards are submitted each year with the projects judged on criteria ranging from innovation to the quality of the completed project. One of the most significant accomplishments of the project was the smoothness of the completed road; 34.1 inches per mile. Anything below 40.0 inches per mile is considered exceptional. The total length of this project was 6.94 miles. This project consisted of milling 4” of existing asphalt pavement and placing 2.5” of Superpave 125B and 1.5” of Superpave 095B Stone Matrix Asphalt. They partnered with Fred Weber Inc. who produced the mix. In order to deliver a higher recycled project they chose to use Evoflex in the SP190B mix. They finished construction with a total of 49,984 tons of mix. This project represents excellent execution of Primary Route (Less than 50,000 tons) work.
