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.
The Toledo project called for turn lane additions, curb replacement along the length of the entire project, drive apron installation, paving, widening and milling. The Shelly Co. used approximately 6,200 tons of HMA to complete the work. The buildup included: 8 inches of crushed aggregate base; 7 inches of Item 302, big rock asphalt concrete base; 1 ½ inches of 446 Type 2; 1 ½ inches of 446, 9.5 mm mix and performance grade binder PG76-22 was used in the surface and intermediate courses.
