Chillicothe (Friday, April 15, 2016) - The Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9 and one of its contractors has been recognized for outstanding performance following a resurfacing project in Pike County.
ODOT District 9’s Construction Department and Shelly & Sands, Incorporated received the 2015 Quality Award for Asphalt Paving from the Flexible Pavements of Ohio Association for a resurfacing project on U.S. Route 23 in Pike County.
“We have a terrific team of engineers, inspectors and technicians throughout the district who work hard to deliver projects that preserve our system and serve the public well, so recognition from Flexible Pavements is appreciated,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson. “I offer my congratulations to our crew and the contractors for their efforts to deliver a successful, high quality product.”
During its 2015 construction season, ODOT District 9’s construction department undertook a resurfacing project on U.S. 23, from just south of state Route 32 at Piketon to the southern corporation limit of Waverly and from just north of Waverly to T.R. 438 (Park Road), near the Ross County line. Construction also included pavement repairs, guardrail replacement and minor structure repair to the bridges.
Leading the 8.66-mile, four-lane resurfacing project on U.S. 23 for ODOT District 9 were Jason Bednarczyk, transportation engineer; highway technicians Shane Haubeil and Steve Thompson; and now-retired area field engineer Victor Picciano. The team worked in tandem with Shelly & Sands’ crews to assure quality control for materials, workmanship and smooth riding quality.
