About Pavement Constructors
Pavement Constructor’s roots began in 1916 with R.L. Murphey, of Corsicana, TX, mixing Portland cement and gravel in the back of a horse drawn wagon. As his business grew so did the scope and scale of projects. He poured most of the foundations and sidewalks in downtown and placed the first airport runway in Corsicana and the Stanford Oil Family even contracted him to pour one of the first ever in-ground concrete pools in Texas. In old downtown Corsicana, you can still find the old “Murphey Concrete” stamp.
Nearly 40 years later, Howard Thomas Murphey, Sr. expanded the construction capabilities of the company, bringing Tom Murphey II into the family business.
He and his eldest son, Tom Murphey II moved to Houston in 1976, starting Custom Paving, Inc., specializing in asphalt parking lots, chip – seal and commercial paving. Tom infused a new professionalism into the industry and this professional quality proved successful for Tom and Custom Paving. It is still in practice today and is held up as a core value in Pavement Constructors.
From Murphey Concrete to Custom Paving we have become civil constructors. We are Pavement Constructors, providing industrial paving solutions and value engineered design with lasting quality.
Family owned and operated, serving Texas for nearly 100 years and the Greater Houston Area since 1976, Pavement Constructors has grown into one of the region’s most versatile and trusted full service civil construction, commercial and industrial site work providers, paving and pavement repair and expansion installers.
