The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced seven Excellence in Construction awards.
Among the winners was Northeast Asphalt Inc., who won the Asphalt Paving Award for the work done on US 45 in Shawano County. The project took place on the eight-mile stretch of road between Clintonville and Wittenberg. Taylor Tauer was the project manager.
“It took a lot of coordination between our crews, the DOT and our subcontractors to get it done that quickly,” Tauer said of the project that was completed 17 days ahead of schedule while traffic was maintained throughout construction. “Everyone working together.”
He added that the weather also contributed to the quick work. The DOT said that Northeast Asphalt “delivered a project with a superior ride and excellent pavement densities which will maximize the life of the new pavement.”
