The Ontario Ministry of Transportation named Cruickshank Construction Paver of the Year for their work on the Napanee stretch of Highway 401. The project was completed in the fall of 2014. Cruickshank earned the majority of the bonuses achievable on the project for mix properties and compaction, and full bonus for smoothness and segregation," said CEO Steve Cruickshank. This became a classic example of how Evotherm warm mix asphalt technology combines with excellent paving practices to yield bonuses for ride and compaction that lead to top road performance.
Crews had to complete 9,929 meters (6 miles) of crack repair to the HMA layers overlying the concrete base. After full depth repairs were made, the top 50 mm was milled and then repaved with a 50-mm lift of SP 19mm followed by a 40 mm lift of SP 12.5mm GC2 for a total thickness of about 240 mm.
