The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) announced that Knife River Corporation-Northwest of Bend won a 2016 Quality in Construction Award for excellence in construction of an asphalt pavement. The company received its award today at a ceremony during the association’s 62nd Annual Meeting in Orlando.
Knife River Corporation-Northwest won the award for the complete reconstruction of runway 4/22 at Redmond Municipal Airport Runway.

Crews worked around the clock for 14 days to reconstruct the intersection of runways 4/22 and 11/29.
Through excellent planning and execution, Knife River Corporation-Northwest produced a quality asphalt runway on time and within budget for the municipal airport.
