The state transportation agency highlighted six companies on Friday for projects across Wisconsin in its 2022 Excellence in Construction awards.

WisDOT selected winners for an asphalt paving project in Lincoln County, a concrete paving project in Washburn County, a grading project in Brown County, a small bridge project in Eau Claire County, a large bridge project in Racine County and a large contract in Dane County.

Here are the companies and projects awarded:

  • Mosinee-based American Asphalt of Wisconsin won the Excellence in Asphalt Paving award for work on the U.S. Highway 51 project from Marathon County line to Lincoln County K. Crews reconstructed a 6.5-mile section of U.S. 51, replaced seven traffic crossovers and multiple interchange ramps. The contractor completed its project more than five months ahead of schedule thanks to careful efficiency and planning.
  • Marshfield-based Trierweiler Construction won the Excellence in Concrete Paving award for work on U.S. Highway 63, between Greenwood Avenue and Poplar Street in Spooner, Washburn County. The company used a stringless paving technology, which uses electronically guided equipment, to improve ride quality of pavement and ease access issues. Officials said the project would benefit Spooner for years.
  • Black River Falls-based Hoffman Construction won the Excellence in Grading award for work on the Wisconsin Highway 29 and County Road VV Interchange in Brown County. The company worked long hours and weekends for two years to build a diamond interchange with roundabouts, and construction and realignment of local area roads. Grading operations were instrumental to meet schedule, officials said.
  • Black River Falls-based Lunda Construction won the Excellence in Small Structures award for the County V bridge over Bridge Creek in Eau Claire County. The structure replacement was adjacent to historic Dells Mill and needed careful consideration of construction methods, which included seismic monitoring.
  • Waukesha-based Zenith Tech received the Excellence in Large Structures award for the West 6th Street Bridge over the Root River in Racine County. Crews replaced a historic concrete arch structure and used similar features from the original bridge. The company overcame multiple challenges and used innovative solutions to save time and budget.
  • Waukesha-based Payne & Dolan got the Large Contract award for work on highways 12 and 18, also known as the Beltline, between Whitney Way and Interstate 39/90 in Madison in Dane County. The project introduced the first Flex Lane in Wisconsin, known by engineers as dynamic part-time shoulder use. The project used the largest Intelligent Transportation System deployment in state history and the company used innovative thinking and excellent scheduling to overcome an enormous workload and numerous project challenges.
