The Dean Word Company started in 1890 moving dirt with mule teams
for road and levee construction in Louisiana. Twenty years later,
the company added bridge and culvert construction capabilities.
More than 100 years have since passed and our company now produces
crushed aggregates and high quality hot mix asphalt material.
We have extensive QC/QA capabilities (including mobile labs) to
ensure compliance with the latest specifications for high performance
flexible pavements such as Superpave, Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA)
and Porous Friction Courses.
Today, Dean Word Company is a full service heavy highway contractor.
We maintain a sizeable backlog of TxDOT highway construction and
maintenance projects, plus related civil construction projects
for various other public agencies and private clients.
