The District Five crew tied with a District Six crew for the honor.
The District Five crew, led by Eugene Mario Trujillo, won the award for the high quality job they did chip sealing N.M. 111, from MP 5 to MP 10 in Rio Arriba County. The Ojo Caliente Patrol assisted with the project.
A plaque was presented to the crew by officials with the State Materials Bureau and State Maintenance Bureau at the annual Pavement Preservation Workshop held in Albuquerque.
