National paving awards are big win for north Idaho projects and drivers          

Three north Idaho projects received recognition from the National Asphalt and Paving Association just before Christmas for high-quality paving, signifying a big win for the Idaho Transportation Department, the contractor (Poe Asphalt and Paving), and most importantly, the region’s drivers.

The pavement work for the second stage of US-95 near Sheep Creek, for US-95 near Cougar Creek and for Sherman Avenue to Blue Creek Bay Bridge on I-90 (pictured above) earned Quality in Construction awards in December.
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.
 “Our project managers and materials engineers work with contractors to ensure that the public receives high-quality product,” said Marvin Fenn, D1 engineering manager.
“Collaborating with ITD engineers is always a positive experience,” said Brian Poe, a project manager for Poe Asphalt and Paving in Post Falls. “It is great to work with a team that wants to deliver the best projects for the traveling public.”
