Highwaysfor LIFE Project
MIDLAND, Va. – Smith-Midland Corporation has been named winner of the 2010 National Capital Chapter American Concrete Institute (ACI) Concrete Award in the category of heavy construction.
The company’s involvement in the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Highways for LIFE project on I-66 was selected for the annual recognition. Smith-Midland supplied the pre-stressed concrete pavement slab panels which replaced concrete pavement along 1,000 linear feet of westbound I-66 in all four lanes and a portion of the ramp to Route 50 in Fairfax County.
Highways for LIFE is a national program designed to advance longer-lasting highway infrastructure using innovation to accomplish fast construction of efficient and save highways and bridges.
“The program has three goals: to improve safety during and after construction, to reduce congestion caused by construction and to improve the quality of the highway infrastructure,” said Matthew Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Smith-Midland. “We are very pleased that ACI chose to recognize the innovative use of precast concrete by Smith-Midland Corporation in support of this project.”
The award is part of an annual recognition program sponsored by the National Capital Chapter of ACI. Judging is based primarily on the creative, innovative, aesthetic and imaginative use of concrete. Smith accepted the award on behalf of Smith-Midland at an awards banquet May 11 in Tysons Corner.
