O&G’s Asphalt Paving Division Receives Five CAAPA Paving Awards

On April 19, 2024, the Connecticut Asphalt & Aggregate Producers Association (CAAPA) held its Asphalt Pavement Conference at the Aqua Turf Club to recognize the top performers of the 2023 paving season. Out of 36 nominations, ten projects were selected for recognition, and 44 awards were presented at the ceremony. Among the recipients was O&G, which received five awards for its contribution to three different projects.

The Greenwich Weigh Station project on I-95 Northbound and the Pavement Preservation project in Farmington, Newtown, and Branford earned O&G four awards in the Special Projects category. The company served as the prime contractor and supplier for the Greenwich Weigh Station project while subcontracting the paving work to Water’s Construction, based in Bridgeport. For the Pavement Preservation project, O&G was recognized for supplying mix out of their Waterbury Plant for the Farmington and Newtown locations.

O&G’s expertise in repaving Limited Access Roadways was acknowledged with an award for the Route 8 Southbound project in Torrington, between exits 45 and 42. Acting as both prime contractor and paving contractor, O&G also supplied the mix out of its Bogue Road, Torrington plant. The company’s history with Route 8 dates back to the 1960s when they built this span of highway, making this project all the more special.

The success of these projects would not have been possible without the exceptional support of O&G’s paving and plant (asphalt/quarry) teams, road crews, customers, and project partners like Waters Construction. O&G was entrusted by the CTDOT to undertake the Greenwich Weigh Station and Route 8 projects, a responsibility that they take seriously and are proud to fulfill. The company’s accomplishments during the 2023 paving season demonstrate the company’s commitment to delivering high-quality infrastructure projects, ensuring the safety and convenience of the public, and upholding its reputation as a trusted partner in the industry.
