SALT LAKE CITY, Utah–Staker Parson’s asphalt paving crew led by foreman Jason Kanamu was recognized this week as the Raving Fan Crew of the Month for their work on the Geneva Road, University Parkway to 1600 North project. Staker Parson is working as a subcontractor to Kiewit on the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) project.

Chris Memmott, UDOT’s project manager, said “This was a difficult decision for UDOT to make. There is a significant amount of good work proceeding on the Geneva Road Project. A crew that is worthy to be selected and recognized for their excellent performance, out of all that is going on, is significant. UDOT is proud to select Jason’s crew for their exceptional workmanship in paving short distances and in confined work areas while still providing a quality product. They show up on short notice and perform in a professional manner. UDOT is proud to have Jason’s crew and Staker Parson involved in another quality project.”

Staker Parson project manager Tyler Shepherd added that Jason and his team have paved under challenging circumstances but they do it every day with a smile.

Each member of the crew was awarded a $50 gift card and general contractor Kiewit will take them to lunch to praise them for a job well done. Staker Parson will complete 75,000 tons of paving on the project.
