Butler County Engineer Dean C. Foster accepted an award last Thursday from Flexible Pavements, Inc. for the Cincinnati Dayton Road widening project in Monroe and Middletown. The award was presented at Flexible Pavement's 37th Annual Meeting and Equipment Exhibition Awards Ceremony in Columbus.

The Butler County Engineer's Office was awarded "Best Local Road or Street - Major Rehabilitation" for the Cincinnati Dayton Road widening completed last year. Superior workmanship, smoothness, and riding quality are taken into consideration when identifying projects that qualify for the awards, which are distributed by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) as well as Flexible Pavements, Inc.

"We're extremely proud to see this project recognized as one of Ohio's best," said Foster. "We can certainly attribute this to a quality contractor plus good field personnel and inspection...overall, a good, experienced team effort in putting down the asphalt."

Among the award recipients for the project were:

Dean C. Foster, Butler County Engineer -- Project sponsor;
Donald Grooms, L.P. Cavett Company -- Paving Foreman;
Gary Mount, L.P. Cavett Company -- General Superintendent;
Dave Mollenkamp, L.P. Cavett Company -- Estimator;
Steve Wood, ODOT District 8 -- Project Engineer;
Ron Young, ODOT, District 8 -- Project Inspector;
Darrell Davenport, ODOT, District 8 -- Project Inspector.

The L.P. Cavett Company of Cincinnati was the contractor and ODOT managed the construction phase of the project, which widened approximately two miles of Cincinnati Dayton Road from two to five lanes between Ohio 63 and Oxford State Road. The BCEO sponsored the project, was responsible for design and engineering, and secured Federal funds to pay for 80 percent of the project's cost. The Cities of Monroe and Middletown contributed to the local matching funds.
