Each year, the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) honors Missouri’s top asphalt paving projects and the companies that performed them. Projects compete in nine specialized categories, ranging from Airports to Full Depth Paving. According to MAPA, submissions are evaluated using the following criteria: “smoothness, longitudinal joints, segregation, degree of difficulty, innovative practices, uniqueness of the project, and overall quality.” Herzog Contracting Corp. earned the following three awards for 2018:
1st Place – Maintenance
