April 20, 2022, Oakville, ON – Congratulations to the Regional Municipality of York and Brennan Paving and Construction Ltd for winning the 2021 Municipal Paving Award presented during the 2022 Good Roads Conference, April 10-13 in Toronto.

“The Fifth annual municipal paving award recognizes the successful collaboration between the municipalities and contractors for project excellence and innovation in terms of paving projects. York won for the work they did on Kennedy Road near a school crossing zone.” said Scott Butler, Executive Director, Good Roads.

“Several factors contributed to the Municipality of York winning, including the use of environment-friendly warm mix technology that allowed for lower production temperature, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, reduced fumes and orders, and faster re-opening to traffic, resulting in overall cost savings. The project was completed on time and on budget, but more importantly, they consulted with local stakeholders in the area and included AODA intersection improvements, along with paving operations that had to be done in high-traffic areas during peak times.” said Dr. James Smith, Manager of Research and Technical Products.

Every year Good Roads recognizes municipal, First Nation and corporate member projects that help improve the quality of life of residents.

Good Roads is a municipal association concerned with the advancement of roads and other infrastructure in Ontario. Based in Oakville, Ontario, we have been devoted to the cause of better roads since 1894. Originally known as the Ontario Good Roads Association (and still using that name corporately), we have more than 450 member governments, including most of Ontario’s municipalities and a growing number of First Nations, as well as dozens of affiliated corporate members in the transportation and infrastructure sectors. Our purpose, in part, is to connect our members to each other, to other levels of government, and to relevant companies in the private sector. Our members look to us for training, knowledge, political advocacy, and answers to their most pressing problems. Good Roads is resolutely independent.
