Norris Asphalt Wins the Sheldon G Hayes Award for the 2nd Time
Norris Asphalt Paving Co. of Ottumwa, IA and the Iowa DOT District 4 Office were announced on September 10, 2016 as the winners of the Sheldon G Hayes Award by the National Asphalt Paving Association (NAPA) at the  NAPA Annual Convention in La Quinta, CA. The Sheldon G Hayes Award is bestowed upon the contractor and agency for the best asphalt paving project in the nation. Norris and the IDOT District 4 Office won the award for the US Highway 34 project in Adams and Montgomery Counties. This is the second time that Norris Asphalt has won the award. They had previously won the award in 2001 and in the intervening years had been a finalist seven additional times, including a second finalist project this year for US Highway 92 in Adair Co. “We approach every project we begin with the intention of winning the Sheldon G Hayes Award”, said Brady Meldrem, President of Norris Asphalt, “It’s a testament to the quality and workmanship that our crews achieve that we have been in the finals for this prestigious award so many times over the past 15 years.” Manatts, Inc. of Newton, IA and IDOT District 6 were also honored as one of the four finalist projects on the Highway 1 project in Johnson and Linn Counties. With the fifth win of the Sheldon  G Hayes Award, Iowa contractors have now won the award more times than any other state. “We have the best paving contractors in the nation in Iowa” said Bill Rosener, Executive Vice President of the Asphalt Paving Association  of Iowa. “The level of competition amongst the Iowa Asphalt contractors and Iowa’s concrete industry, drives the quality and performance of Iowa’s asphalt roads to the top of this industry nationally.  The partnership  with the Iowa DOT and its personnel has driven the level of expectations for this industry to be the very best. Iowa’s taxpayers and the driving public reap the benefits.”
