ACPA has presented its Sustainable Practices Recognition Award to the Utah DOT Region 2; Geneva Rock Products, Inc., and Holcim (US) for their work on the Interstate-80 reconstruction project from Silver Creek Junction to Wanship, Utah. This award recognizes the leadership of these companies/organizations and the individuals involved in the project, specifically in the area of pavement sustainability. The award also pays appropriate tribute to the teamwork and leadership in conceiving and executing the I-80 project.
This project is believed to be include the first ever partial depth reclamation of only 4 inches of existing asphalt with cement, as well as the first large scale paving project using Envirocore cement. The combined efforts have resulted in the attainment of the “triple bottom-line” of societal, environmental, and economic factors. This project has made the Utah DOT and others in the concrete pavement industry more aware of what can be done in applying sustainable practices without impacting cost, schedule, or the traveling public.
The ACPA’s Sustainable Practices Recognition Award is a national award presented to an organization or team (owner and contractor) that demonstrates leadership by implementing sustainable design and construction practices that consider societal, environmental and economic factors.
