T his past August, construction began on a project to renovate a three-mile section of New York Route 112, between Old Middle Country Road to Kensington Drive and between Route 347 and Route 25A in Brookhaven, N.Y. The project will improve the road and sidewalks, along with adding bike lanes. Performing much of the work on this project is New Jersey-based Intercounty Paving Associates LLC, which says it has grown into projects of this size since it was founded in 1997. “Over the last 12 years, Intercounty Paving has grown from a small paving company into a large, full-service construction company,” it says. “While paving is still a large part of Intercounty’s business, it is by no means our only business.” A big part of the reason for the company’s success has been the experience and reputation its founders brought to it. The company’s founders, Carl and John Lizza, are third-generation members of the Lizza family, which has been building roads throughout the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania for more than 60 years, according to the company. “While our growth has been impressive, it has not been our goal, only a by-product,” the company says. “Intercounty Paving’s goal has been to provide quality service to our customers at competitive prices, and to create an atmosphere in which Intercounty Paving and its customers can both be successful.

Through expansion and acquisition, Intercounty Paving has grown to add many services that have strengthened its position in the marketplace. “Early on, Intercounty Paving realized the importance of having a milling division,” the company says. “Intercounty Paving purchased its first machine in 1998. Now, Intercounty Paving boasts one of the largest milling operations in the tri-state area, with 10 milling machines and crews.” In some cases, these services are relatively unique for the region, further separating Intercounty Paving from the competition. “Intercounty Paving is one of the very few companies in the New York and New Jersey area to have a road reclamation division,” the company adds. “Realizing the financial con- CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY 2010
