Colorado's Pikes Peak Overlay Project Wins Excellence in Concrete Award

The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Concrete Institute recently announced that the Denver Pikes Peak Shuttle Lot concrete overlay project was selected as the 2021 Excellence in Concrete winner in the Flatwork/Paving category. The 34.5-acre project (shown in part here) includes a 10-inch thick concrete bus lane as well as a 4.5-inch concrete overlay over asphalt for the car parking areas and took only eight months to complete. The project is reportedly the largest concrete parking lot overlay ever constructed in the U.S.

The contractor for the project was American Concrete Paving Association Colorado/Wyoming member Concrete Works of Colorado (CWC) owned by Marc Lenart. ACPA CO/WY, the CP Tech Center and NRMCA staff worked with DIA Landside Engineering Group and CWC to develop the design and construction specifications for this important project. Concrete overlays have also been a marketing focus for the ACPA CO/WY Chapter and for NRMCA for some time.
