Asphalt Pavement: A Critically Important Aspect of Infrastructure Resiliency
Asphalt pavements inherently possess resilient features, though the typical pavement
engineer/designer does not necessarily think of these characteristics through the lens of
resilience. The rapid constructability of asphalt pavements enables a producer to become a
“first responder” after a disaster; if a pavement is damaged due to an extreme event, it can be
quickly restored through fast construction. Tools and methods such as warm mix asphalt,
adaptable materials (e.g., polymer modified binders to resist high temperature or traffic load
deformation), porous asphalt systems for storm water management, and the ability to recycle
materials that have been compromised during an event as a means of compensating for
disrupted materials supply chains enhance the resilience of the system.
APAC Hays Branch
receives two Quality in Paving awards
National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) presented
the Quality in Paving awards during the 2021 virtual annual convention. Both projects were KDOT projects constructed
in 2020. The award winning projects are the US 50 project
in Harvey county and the K51 project in Morton county. Projects winners are selected based on consistency and
quality of mix . A well deserved congratulations to the
APAC Hays branch for this achievement, especially with
all the challenges brought on during the pandemic.

Cornejo & Sons Recognized by NAPA for Safety
Safety is top priority, and each year the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) recognizes safety achievement though their Asphalt Safety Operations Innovations awards.
Congratulations to Cornejo & Sons for earning finalist honors for the 2019 Asphalt Safety Operations Innovation award for their Entering and Exiting Work Zone Flags. This award recognizes companies that develop innovative ideas or achieve practical outcomes leading to improved worker safety in a roadway, plant site or quarry environment, and whose safety practices are above and beyond normal safety practices. Cornejo & Sons earned finalist honors for their Entering and Exiting Work Zone Flags. Cornejo & Sons developed color-coded flags and windshield stickers for each type of fleet vehicle. The flags and stickers allow drivers to enter and exit work zones without verbal communication, minimizes chances of traffic control personnel being struck by entering and exiting vehicles, allows for specified entrances and exits that drivers can see from a further distance for different materials being delivered. In addition, it decreases congestion at entrances and exits and blocking of entrances and exits by subcontractors and third-party vehicles.
Way to go Cornejo!
