National paving group awards ITD north-central Idaho project
The National Asphalt and Paving Association awarded a recently completed north-central Idaho project for a high-quality final product. The award went to the project’s contractor, Knife River, but is primarily a win for the region’s drivers.
Two companioned projects treated as one entry, were awarded Dec. 20, 2017. The two sections were an eight-mile piece from the Spalding Bridge to Lewiston, and four miles from Spalding to the junction of US-12 & ID-3. Pictured above is the US-95/US-12 interchange in Lewiston. Everything in the photo was milled, then filled, then overlayed with hot mix.
Awards are granted based on samples that are submitted to the National Center for Asphalt Technology in Alabama and reviewed for deviations and for consistency.
