"Earning a Quality in Construction Award shows a strong commitment to quality from a contractor who measures their project against industry best practices. In earning this Quality in Construction Award, Hardrives has constructed a safe, quiet, smooth asphalt pavement."

Hardrives won the award for the full depth reclamation, milling, and paving of a section of U.S. 12 in Meeker County.
