APAC Kansas wins national award for 
Gove County project

APAC Kansas-Shears Division earned the Sheldon G. Hayes Award this week – the top paving award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association. The award recognizes APAC's work on the Kansas Department of Transportation’s I-70 asphalt improvement project in Gove County. The project covered just over 9 miles of I-70 starting 4 miles east of Park and ending at the Trego County line. Nearly 76,000 tons of asphalt was used on the driving lanes and shoulders.

“This award acknowledges what we Kansans have always known; Kansas contractors are second to none,” said Calvin Reed, Secretary of Transportation. “It is the result of exceptional collaboration between Kansas-based industry partners and KDOT who completed the I-70 project with a high degree of skill and attention to detail.”

KDOT Central Lab Tour

Workforce development is a high priority initiative as the transportation industry embarks on a big workload via the state 
IKE plan and the federal BIL plan. Getting construction interns interested in transportation is part of that initiative. What better
 way to get construction interns interested in transportation than 
to display first hand the KDOT central lab and the dedicated and talented work of the KDOT staff that work there!

A shout out to the KDOT staff for hosting a tour of the central 
lab. And special thanks to Rick Barezinsky, Blair Heptig and 
Shane Houser for leading the tours of the lab. We had great participation from several companies including producers, 
suppliers, and equipment dealers. 

The lab tour was just one stop for the interns, after the
 KDOT tour they spent time at KCA and the capitol. 
 Awesome job by the KCA staff in organizing the day.

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.

New Communication Tool Available
NAPA launched a new website, DriveAsphalt.org. The site aims to provide information to road owners about the superior performance of asphalt pavements.  The website can be a helpful tool for meetings with DOT, public works, and tollway officials. In the upcoming months, the site will be enhanced and expanded into a full resource for pavement designers seeking information about asphalt pavements.
