EBA Engineering Receives Two Excellence in Paving Awards from Maryland Asphalt Association
EBA was recognized with two awards in the Maryland Asphalt Association (MAA) 2021 Excellence in Paving Awards competition. EBA’s Greg Holsey, Mike Brown, Muhammad Jamal Uddin, and Abel Yeshitila accepted the awards at the MAA 58th Annual Paving Conference on Thursday, March 17, at Martin’s West in Baltimore.
Each year, MAA and the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) recognize exceptional asphalt paving jobs in Maryland. Judges closely examine each of the entries through a series of tours and rate them based on ride, joints, texture, and tie-ins to determine the winners.
The Excellence in Paving Awards recognized two projects performed under EBA’s contract with MDOT SHA District 3 to pave and resurface state roads in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.
The I-495 Outer Loop from MD 414 to MD 5 paving project involved safety improvements to 3 miles of roadway, while the MD 216 (7th Street) at Main Street paving project involved intersection improvements. EBA provided project engineering and inspection services for both projects.
“Both of these projects required daily, detailed inspection and assessment to ensure outstanding pavement repairs,” said EBA President and CEO Rizwan Siddiqi, PE. “Our project teams were fully committed to meeting our clients’ needs.”
