2017 Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction Awards

In 2013,  NAPA began recognizing the top general pavements constructed and submitted for a Quality in Construction Award.  Dubbed the Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction Award, the 10 highest-scoring projects submitted for a Quality in Construction Award in the General Paving (less than 50,000 tons) category are recognized for their commitment to building high-quality roads.  


The award is named after Larry H. Lemon of Haskell Lemon Construction in Oklahoma City, who served faithfully on the Awards Committee for 18 years, before serving as Chairman of NAPA in 2010. Larry was instrumental in the creation of the rating system for the Quality in Construction Awards which require qualitative analysis using data and test results to determine the winners.
