Montana Project Wins Pavement Award

Staff | September 28, 2010

Helena, MT— A Montana project was on the list when the Asphalt Pavement Alliance recently announced the winners of its 2007 Perpetual Pavement Awards.

The award is given to owners of asphalt pavements that are at least 35 years old and have never had a structural failure. The average interval between resurfacing of each winning pavement must be no less than 13 years. The road must demonstrate the qualities expected from long-life asphalt pavements: excellence in design, quality in construction, and value to the traveling public.

The Montana Department of Transportation was recognized for a 6-mile section of Interstate 15 through the eastern portion of the city of Helena.

Presentations will be made on Nov. 12 at a special ceremony during the International Conference on Warm-Mix Asphalt in Nashville, TN.
