The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) has announced that Ranger Construction Industries, Inc., of West Palm Beach, Florida, has won a Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award in February 2014 at a ceremony during the association’s 59th Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Florida.
Ranger won the award for its work on Okeechobee Blvd. in Palm Beach County. The company partnered with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on this resurfacing, restoration, and rehabilitation project; for example, it proposed an alternative drainage structure to save FDOT money and to shorten installation time. Ranger milled the road and repaved it with 14,000 tons of asphalt, providing a smooth asphalt pavement with an outstanding ride quality.
“The Quality in Construction Awards compare nominated pavements against best practices and standards, and honor those that exemplify excellence in construction standards,” said John J. Keating, 2013 Chairman of the NAPA Board of Directors.
