Ranger Construction received eight 2014 Quality In Construction (QIC) Awards from the National Asphalt Pavement Association recently, continuing its run of high-profile, award-winning road improvement work. The company received more than a dozen quality awards for its paving and construction work performed during the course of the year.
The NAPA awards were presented at the association’s 60th annual meeting, held in Marco Island, Florida, in January 2015.
Ranger was recognized with Quality In Construction Awards for these eight projects, with project-specific comments from the awards notification shown in quotations:
Major Improvements to I-595 in Ft. Lauderdale
“The four-year project included new construction of the express lanes plus widening, milling, and replacement of several nearby roads. The company had to safely maintain traffic flow of up to 140,000 vehicles a day. During paving, the company used three asphalt plants and up to 10 paving crews at a time.”
