CARMEL, IN — The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announces the winners of its 2023 Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction (QIC) Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement using less than 50,000 tons of asphalt. The winning companies received their award during the association’s Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.

The Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction Award recognizes the 10 highest-scoring projects submitted for a QIC Award in the General Paving (less than 50,000 tons) category.

“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public," 2023 NAPA Chair Christian Zimmermann said. "All contractors’ projects earning a Quality in Construction award are measured against best practices designed to live up to that commitment."

The 2023 winners and their projects in the Construction Digest area, arranged alphabetically, are:

  • Howard Cos., of Indianapolis, Indiana, for various roads in Carmel, Indiana
  • Scotty's Contracting and Stone LLC, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, for SR 136 (Livermore Road) in Ohio County, Kentucky
  • Shelly & Sands Inc., of Zanesville, Ohio, for SR 13 and SR 550 in Athens County, Ohio
  • Shelly & Sands Inc., of Zanesville, Ohio, for SR 513 and SR 761 in Guernsey County, Ohio

Projects submitted for a Quality in Construction Award are evaluated by an independent pavement engineer who assigns each project a numerical score based on how well the contractor met specifications and achieved density on the finished pavement. All pavements meeting a benchmark figure earn the QIC Award. The Larry Lemon Award honors the 10 highest-scoring projects, as determined in the review.

The award is named after Larry Lemon of Haskell Lemon Construction in Oklahoma City. Lemon served on the NAPA Awards Committee for 18 years, before serving as Chairman of the association’s Board of Directors in 2010 prior to his retirement. Lemon was instrumental in the creation of the rating system for the Quality in Construction Awards, which requires qualitative analysis using data and test results to determine the winners.
