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.
Taking advantage of having the project near its facilities, Kokosing Construction milled 1½ inches of asphalt and replaced it with 18,000 tons of new mix on a nearly five-mile stretch of S.R. 13 bypassing Fredericktown. Because of the close proximity of its asphalt plant to the project, Kokosing Construction was able to provide a consistent mix temperature at the paver which enabled crews to minimize the number of transverse joints and provide better transitions at the intersections and ramps.
