TWIN FALLS — Idaho Materials and Construction won a Quality in Construction Award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association for its asphalt work on 1-84 in Canyon County.
“We were honored to receive this award,” Eric St. Pierre, IMC general manager, said in a statement. “It was an ultimate team approach between our employees, subcontractors and the state of Idaho. The fast-track nature of this project helped to show the strength of our teams, as well as their ability to go above and beyond. All of the work was performed with zero incidents, even with the compressed schedule. I am extremely proud of our team and what they can accomplish.”
IMC successfully worked with the Idaho Transportation Department to minimize the effect on commuters while completing an eight-mile mill-and-overlay project to repair roads that had been damaged due to a harsh winter. Three paving crews and two plants kept the project moving for four consecutive weekends.
“The asphalt pavement industry is committed to building high-quality projects that deliver superior performance to the traveling public,” 2017 NAPA Chairman Dan Gallagher said in a statement. “All contractors’ projects earning a Quality in Construction Award are measured against best practices designed to live up to that commitment. Earning the award demonstrates that Idaho Materials and Construction has met or exceeded these rigorous standards.”
