CITY OF PEWAUKEE – Payne & Dolan, Inc. was one of several companies to receive one of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Construction Awards on Tuesday.

Based in the City of Pewaukee, Payne & Dolan earned the Excellence in Asphalt Paving Award for its work on a five-mile section of Interstate 39 in Dane County, according to the announcement. The $7.4 million project involved resurfacing the interstate corridors and included ramp extensions at the Highway 51 Interchange, guardrail, signing and pavement marking upgrades, installation of ramp gates and a dynamic message sign.

Other WisDOT award winners are: H. James and Sons of Fennimore with The Excellence in Grading Award; Vinton Construction Company of Manitowoc with The Excellence in Concrete Paving Award; Ruzic Construction of Neillsville and Mattison Contractors of Knapp with The Excellence in Small Structures Award; and Edward Kraemer and Sons, Inc. of Plain with The Excellence in Large Structures Award. 

“We are truly fortunate to have so many private-sector partners who do outstanding work to keep people and commerce moving safely across Wisconsin,” said Beth Cannestra, director of WisDOT’s Bureau of Project Development, in a statement. “It’s always difficult to choose award winners because our contractors do great work, but after careful consideration, we feel these projects are among the best of the best.”
