The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) recently announced that Austin Bridge & Road, along with Reynolds Asphalt & Construction Co. of Irving, TX, won a 2015 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in asphalt pavement construction.

Austin Bridge & Road and Reynolds Asphalt & Construction Co. won the award for their work on the North Tarrant Express Highway Construction Project. Work for this job involved the complete reconstruction of existing travel lanes, frontage roads, and intersections, as well as the addition of managed lanes to one of the most congested roadways in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

The companies worked sustainable paving practices into this project, using FRAP (fractionated recycled asphalt pavement), much of it processed from the road’s original pavement.
