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.

Kokosing Construction Co. and ODOT D-12

Project consisted of the paving of both mainline lanes and 10-foot shoulder paved simultaneously using both a 24-foot wide paver and a 10-foot wide paver resulting in superior joint construction and overall craftsmanship. Kokosing developed a Continuous Mat Temperature Recording Device for use on this project and collected thousands of temperature readings across the surface of the mat during nightly paving operations which allowed for immediate knowledge of the temperature of the placed asphalt resulting in a superior surface texture.
