Sheldon G. Hayes Award - Highest Quality in Asphalt Paving
Our premier achievement was in 1994, when Valley Paving earned the highest quality award on a national level for its work on Interstate 35E in Forest Lake to White Bear Lake. The Sheldon G. Hayes Award, is determined through a two-year process of highway pavement projects using more than 50,000 tons of HMA are eligible for consideration. Initially they must win a Quality in Constuction (QIC) Award, which is determined by numerical scores given by pavement engineers at the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) on the basis of how well the contractor met specifications and achieved density on the finished pavement.
