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 Steubenville project consists of the removal of deteriorated concrete pavement and replacement with approximately 7,700 tons of HMA. Shelly & Sands, Inc. used 301 asphalt concrete base, Type 2 intermediate and 448 Type 1H. To ensure a smooth, long-lasting pavement, polymer asphalt was used in the surface course.
