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.

Miller Pavement Construction

Walmart parking facility and roadways, Georgesville Road, Columbus. Miller Pavement Construction paved this project, which was originally scheduled to be completed in 2003 and was figured to take 44 crew days to complete. Due to poor weather conditions in the Fall of 2003 paving was pushed to early 2004. With 9 days until Walmart was to take possession of the property work finally began. Miller installed twenty seven thousand tons of crushed stone base and thirteen thousand tons of hot mix in 9 days. Walmart was able to move in on time.
