The Larry H. Lemon Awards
THE SHELLY CO., AN OLDCASTLE MATERIALS CO.
Ohio Department of Transportation, District 5
21st Street in Licking County
Thornville, Ohio

The Shelly Co. was contracted to mill and overlay 2.35
miles of 21st Street in Newark, Ohio, which is a hightraffic four- and five-lane road with many businesses
and intersections along its path. "The traffic was so
heavy that it was restricted to night-time milling and
paving only," said Larry Shively, Vice President of Quality
Control with The Shelly Co. "The specifications also
required anti-segregation equipment and the use of nontracking tack coat."
First, the company milled 3 inches and then the area
was paved with 1.5 inches of 448 Type-1 intermediate. The
construction zone was milled and paved back by the end
of every shift. The area was then surfaced with 1.5 inches
of 448 Type-1 Surface PG70-22M.
The Shelly Co. utilized nightly road closures with
grabber cones and arrow boards, as well as police and
flaggers to help manage the 30 intersections interspersed
through the construction zone. "As this corridor has
many intersecting streets, including many signalized
intersections and a high volume of traffic even during
the evening hours, this was a very challenging part of
the project," said Justin Stone, P.E., Project Engineer
with the Ohio Department of Transportation,
District 5 Construction.
By making optimal use of the night lane closures
and the company's internal traffic control plans to help
move vehicles most effectively through the zone, The
Shelly Co. also managed to deliver a consistent flow of
material to the paver. "The Quality Control team worked
hard to control the mix in a timely manner, and density
monitoring and testing was more difficult due to the
traffic issues," Shively said.
In addition, The Shelly Co. used a material transfer
vehicle and remix paver to meet the requirements
of anti-segregation, the night-time pavement
specifications, and surface smoothness tolerances,

21st Street in Newark, Ohio, is a high-traffic, four- and five-lane road that
required superior traffic control planning on the part of The Shelly Co. in
order to execute the mill and overlay.

Shively said. The project took just over 30 days to
complete, resulting in a quality-driven, consistent
ride for motorists with limited impact during
construction. "Many motorists commented to
the department that the roadway rides smoothly
throughout the corridor," Stone said. "Shelly Co.
handled the lane closures well during paving
operations, as they always had adequate flaggers or
law enforcement officers at intersecting streets. This
project was also completed under budget."

WALSH & KELLY INC.

Indiana Department of Transportation
SR 49 in Lake County
Griffith, Ind.
The Walsh & Kelly Inc. mill-and-overlay project on SR
49 in Valparaiso, Ind., took place between U.S. 30 and
the Indiana Toll Road, a busy four-lane highway that
often sees bumper-to-bumper traffic.
The job was divided into two sections, 5.4 miles on
the south end and 2.8 miles on the north end, and
included both northbound and southbound lanes
in each section. The south end work was completed
first and included patching, grinding, and paving 1.5
inches of a conventional asphalt pavement surface.
Crews then moved on to the north end of the project,
which involved scarification milling and laying down
an ultrathin bonded wearing course.
"Traffic was a challenging part throughout the
project," said Charles Johns, Project Manager for Walsh
& Kelly Inc. "The job was within a mile of our asphalt
plant on SR 49, just south of U.S. 30. But with all the
traffic heading north on SR 49, coming from U.S. 30,
everything was getting bottlenecked. It was hard for us
to get our trucks in and out." Walsh & Kelly eventually
added more trucks in an effort to make progress more
consistent. "When that didn't work, we would then
use county roads when possible to get around the
project and back to where we were going," he said.

The widths of the inside lane and shoulder varied between 4 and 9 feet on
the SR 49 project, prompting Walsh & Kelly Inc. to add a hard extension to
the left-hand side of the paver to catch everything.
