Rieth-Riley Construction Co., Inc. won the award for its work on the Cherry Capital Airport’s runway 10/28 and taxiways D and G extension.

The runway work required 24-hour staffing to meet the tight paving schedule requested. A large portion of the paving was completed at night, creating difficult paving conditions. Extreme care was taken to reduce the number and location of joints to provide a smooth and functional surface on which large aircraft can land.
