InRoads LLC purchased a new Astec/Dillman complete plant capable of 350 ton per hour.  This state of the art facility is capable of producing the highest quality, most technically advanced asphalt mix designs on the market today.  The plant was designed as a highly portable asphalt plant and can move from one location to the next in just a few days.  InRoads invested in user friendly additions to the plant that ensure the latest advances in portability, safety, and production.  The plant can recycle up to 50% recycled asphalt with the right additives and end use in mind.  


InRoads plant primarily serves our mainline portable paving crew. InRoads specialty is Interstate, primary, and secondary roadway resurfacing and paving, but we have the ability to pave patches, city streets, and parking lots. No job is too big or too small. Our crew has decades of combined experience and uses the latest technology and equipment to produce the highest quality, most efficient end product.


InRoads will be in the market to sell hot mix asphalt to pick up mix customers Spring 2018.  We have two full time quality control managers who insure quality asphalt production and access to an independent testing facility in Des Moines for verification testing.  InRoads will have crushed asphalt available for sale during the 2018 construction season.   InRoads will also sell cold mix asphalt for patching, rock, sand, and gravel from most of its plant locations.  





For InRoads, asphalt is a family legacy. Joe Manatt’s grandfather, Merlin Manatt, started in the asphalt paving business in the 1960’s. Brad Manatt, Joe’s father, served as an industry leader for nearly 40 years and Joe was exposed to the great leadership principles of his father and grandfather, both voted by their peers into multiple construction related Hall of Fame classes. Among these insightful principles, Brad Manatt taught his son the value of family, integrity, and surrounding yourself with quality people. The conviction to upholding these principles and characteristics are what would ultimately and unknowingly lead to the birth of InRoads, an asphalt paving company.

Spring of 2018 will mark the first paving season for InRoads, but not the first for its company of seasoned employees. InRoads will primarily serve central Iowa, but has the capability to bid and operate portably on any asphalt project throughout the state. We take pride in high quality, efficient, and safe projects. Our equipment and people create a best in class work environment.
