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.
Kokosing Construction Company constructed project 9 of 2004, Knox State routes 13, 308 and 546. It was a complex project with a combination of rural and urban 2-lane resurfacing, and an intersection reconstruction in the City of Mount Vernon. Base reconstruction, multiple course overlays and the use of modified asphalt paving mixtures in high stress pavement areas were all a part of this project. The project required the use of thirty eight thousand tons of hot mix in six different mix types.
