ANGEL LANE RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT
EARNS TWO STATEWIDE AWARDS

March 16, 2015—The combined efforts of the City of Ashland, Boone County, APAC and Engineering Surveys and Services on the Angel Lane Reconstruction Project garnered two awards—the Excellence in Paving Award from the Missouri/Kansas Chapter of the American Concrete Pavement Association and Missouri Department of Transportation and a second place award in the Minor Road Overlay category by the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association. These accomplishments will be recognized through a proclamation presented by the Boone County Commission at 9:30AM on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 in the Roger B. Wilson Boone County Government Center Commission Chambers. Presiding Commissioner Dan Atwill will then present the proclamation and awards to the Ashland Board of Aldermen during their meeting that evening at 7:00PM in Ashland City Hall.  

The successful completion of the project earned two separate awards. The Missouri/Kansas Chapter of the American Concrete Pavement Association and Missouri Department of Transportation presented the Excellence in Paving award in recognition of the high quality engineering performed on the Angel Lane Reconstruction project. The project was rated the best Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) Project completed in the State of Missouri in 2014. The project was also awarded second place in the The Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association’s 2014 Quality Paving Award Minor Road Overlay. 

The groundbreaking ceremony recognizing the commencement of the Angel Lane Reconstruction Project was held on September 22, 2014. The 6600 feet long road rehabilitation project was designed by Engineering Surveys and Services. The reconstruction of Angel Lane from Highway 63 to the Columbia Regional Airport was paid for through a cost-share agreement between the city of Ashland and Boone County. APAC-Missouri was awarded the project and used the “reclamation” process, which pulverizes existing road surface and base materials to a depth of 12 inches then reuses it as part of the new roadway material. Cement is incorporated during the process then a new road asphalt surface was placed.  The bid for this project was approximately $375,000, of which, based on the cost-share agreement, Boone County paid 30 percent. Upon completion of the project, ownership and maintenance of the entire road transferred completely to the city of Ashland.
