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.

Shelly & Sands, Inc. used superpave mixes in the multiple course overlay the intermediate course thickness varied between 3 ¼ to 3 ½ inches and the top course was 1 ½ inches thick. Shelly & Sands used 56,000 tons to complete the project. Field density attained placed the company in the bonus pay category.
