O&G/Tutor Perini Wins CAAPA Award

Torrington, CTt – The joint venture team of O&G Industries/Tutor Perini Corporation has received a 2016 Connecticut Asphalt & Aggregate Producers Association (CAAPA) Award in the Limited Access Roadway category. CAAPA awards are presented annually to projects that exemplify excellence in pavement placed on Connecticut roadways. Winners are selected by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.


The joint venture team was recognized for its work on I-95 and I-91 north and south bound in New Haven. The pavement installation was part of Contract E, a complex, five-and-a-half year, $360M project that will conclude this spring.


“For us, this was a remarkable achievement considering all of the challenges in placing the bituminous concrete on this project,” says John Gemetro, Vice President of O&G’s Heavy Civil Division and Project Executive for the contact. “Matching grades both horizontally and vertically with the numerous stages and many structures while maintaining a heavy flow of traffic, and in the end being able to finish the project with a smooth uniform surface was a real accomplishment. I congratulate our Civil Superintendent Bill Noll and Paving Foreman Vic Mancini for their excellent work.”


The award was presented at CAAPA’s 59th annual conference in North Haven on April 7 in North Haven, Connecticut. The project’s asphalt supplier, milling contractor and quality inspector were also recognized for their contributions.
