Mouchel subsidiary EM Highways was called in to resurface part of the M6 on Saturday after a major lorry fire.
The Area 9 maintenance contractor worked on the damaged southbound highway between junctions 12 and 13 in the West Midlands.
The fire started before 2am on Saturday 18 July and the road was closed until 5.45pm that evening.
A Highways England spokesman said the “severe” fire had “engulfed all lanes of the carriageway”.
“The intensity of the fire caused extensive damage to the carriageway and resurfacing was required,” he added.
