T

he smaller
construction jobs
that take place
yearly on roads
across America are
sometimes overshadowed by
the bigger, brawnier major
highway projects. But it's
asphalt jobs under 50,000 tons
that offer companies a chance
to step into the limelight
and showcase the benefits of
asphalt in local communities.
The following 10
companies are being honored
this year with NAPA's Larry
H. Lemon Award. As rated
by the National Center for
Asphalt Technology at Auburn
University, these companies
scored highest in general
paving projects - roads,
highways, commercial,
and parking lots - using
less than 50,000 tons of
asphalt. Each project brings
its own uniqueness in
scope, approach, and type
of construction. But all 10
companies provided an
important service to their
community by delivering a
fresh, smooth and oftentimes
overdue asphalt surface for
local motorists.

U.S. 50 in Gray County
Hays, Kan.
The 18-mile mill-and-overlay project
on U.S. 50 in Gray County, Kan.,
may have taken place on a rural
road, but the high volume of vehicles
from the local farming community
challenged APAC-Kansas Inc. during
their 12 days of work. "For us it was
a lot of traffic," said Tom Stivers, the
Western Kansas Branch Manager
for APAC-Kansas Inc., an Oldcastle
Materials Co. "There were a lot of
trucks carrying feed for the cattle or
carrying cattle itself."
Indeed, truck traffic on this stretch
of road is placed at 25 percent, said
Dale. C. Luedke, P.E., Area Engineer
with the Kansas Department of
Transportation (KDOT), the road's
owner. "Keeping constant vigilance
on the traffic control was a very high
priority for APAC," Luedke said.
Part of the requirement from the
KDOT was to mill 2 inches off of the
road and then overlay that portion
the same day. The difficult part was to
keep the milling and paving operators
moving while maintaining traffic,
Stivers said.
Using a pilot car and flaggers,
APAC-Kansas Inc. also incorporated
the company's AWARE system, or

APAC-Kansas produced a uniform, consistent
Superpave mix on U.S. 50 - so much so that KDOT's
models didn't recognize such high marks in its quality
control and analysis testing.

Advanced Warning and Risk Evasion,
for traffic control. "It's a smart box
that we set at the flagger station that
helps us to track incoming vehicles
and make sure they are slowing down
properly," Stivers said. If a car is
approaching the work zone too fast,
the box can sense the speed, and will
flash lights and emanate a loud siren.
"It for sure will get the attention of
distracted drivers who aren't paying
attention to all of our signs and who
may be on their phone," he added.
