Each year at its Annual Meeting, Flexible Pavements of Ohio (FPO) recognizes projects that demonstrate exceptional quality in asphalt pavement construction. These awards represent a diverse spectrum of pavement types from Ohio's interstate system with some of the highest traffic volumes in the nation, to low volume rural roadways, to airport runways, and commercial facilities.
Ottawa County Road 163, Langram Road and bike path, Put-in-Bay. Erie Blacktop built the project for the Ottawa County Engineer, Dave Brunkhorst. The Langram Road bike path resulted from the widening of Ottawa County Road 163. The widened buildup uses a crushed stone base and 6 ¾ inches of asphalt pavement. Paving on Put-in-Bay Island is no easy task given the fact that no asphalt plant exists there. Bikers and hikers arriving at Put-in-Bay this summer will be pleasantly surprised with their newest and smoothest asphalt pavement.
