Ontario’s Greatest Road contest now open
August 29, 2013 by STAFF REPORT
The Ontario Hot Mix Producers Association (OHMPA) is holding a photo challenge in search of Ontario’s greatest road.
The winner of the “Great Roads Contest” will receive an iPad Mini at OHMPA’s annual Fall Asphalt Seminar on December 11 in Woodbridge. And the picture will be featured in the winter 2014 edition of Asphaltopics – OHMPA’s asphalt industry magazine.
To submit pictures tweet them to @OHMPA using the #ONGreatRoads hashtag or posting them to Facebook at www.facebook.com/OntarioHotMix. All entries should be of an open road, not a construction site. The contest is open to people of all ages.
“We want to celebrate the simple fact that Ontario rides on great roads and enjoys the smoothest, most economical and greenest roads in the country,” said Doug Duke, executive director of OHMPA.
With more than 200,000 kilometres in asphalt roads Ontario is home to some of the smoothest and most scenic routes in all of North America, he added.
“Beyond just being an appealing contour of black velvety ribbon winding to the horizon, much work and research goes into building roads that are safe and that last,” he said. “The key to a long-lasting, smooth road is to build with the best quality materials to suit the climate, traffic load and geography of the location.”
