While women are still a minority in construction, they are well represented on the Kentucky Hwy. 555 jobsite. Of the six people working at the site, two are women, including Tabitha Ford, the paver operator. Ford is in her third paving season with Mago.

"She came to me and said, 'I don't want to flag anymore. I want to pave.'"
