Publisher’s Letter Dear Readers: Hello, I’m Bill Knopf, an unfamiliar name occupying this space in California Asphalt magazine this month. I’m the new guy on the CalAPA staff. My title is Regional Director, but as the son of a contractor, I’ve never been big on titles anyway. Here’s my story. I attended the NAPA Convention at the LaQuinta Resort in 2016, when Indiana’s Kevin Kelly was NAPA chairman. My wife Lisa joined me. After seven days here, Lisa said, “We are retiring here, right, Bill?” As any guy married for 30+ years knows, the only conceivable answer to that question was “Yes, dear.” At the time, I was in my eighth year as executive director of the Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana. APAI is a very similar state association to CalAPA. In 2017, we were home shopping in the Coachella Valley and bought a house. I resigned from APAI at the end of 2018 and was looking forward to an early retirement, or so I thought. CalAPA, it turns out, needed some staff support based in Southern California, and I still had a burning desire to serve, so I officially joined the CalAPA team on March 1. Confessions: I love the asphalt industry, and I really enjoy the people I’ve met in it, and in the highway construction business in both Indiana and in Iowa. And Lisa and I tremendously enjoy California. This is where we want to live the remainder of our lives. This is where we want to make a difference. I am not an engineer, but I have learned enough to understand them when they speak, thanks to the technical directors I’ve worked with, like Dudley Bonte and Kirsten Pauley at APAI, and now my colleague Brandon Milar at CalAPA, all three PEs. I earned a MBA in 1981, the very same year IBM came out with a product called the Personal Computer. Business has changed just a bit since then. So have I. If we have met, you’ve undoubtedly heard me say, that “I’m drinking from the fire hose.” Going from APAI to CalAPA, from Indiana to California, everything is new -- new specs, new regulations, new politics, and new leaders in our industry. Another expression I’ve used is that going from APAI to CalAPA is like getting called up from AAA to the Major Leagues. Like the baseball analogy, CalAPA is truly the “major league” of state asphalt associations. I am proud and excited to be on this team, and hopefully to contribute in a meaningful way. Russell Snyder, Brandon Milar, Sophie You and Kerry Hoover have an outstanding national reputation for excellence in what they do for (and with) the membership. That reputation also extends to our members’ customers who are employed by state and local government agencies. Welcome to the show, Knopf, no one cares what you’ve done that got you here; it’s what you will do next that matters. Just like in baseball. And what will I be doing next? The main focus of my job as CalAPA’s new Regional Director will be outreach in Southern California: developing relationships with current and prospective members, including lapsed members, event/meeting coordination, industry marketing, liaison with government agencies and legislative coalitions, and support to our various CalAPA committees. At every opportunity I will be learning from members about the issues they care about, which will shape my approach as I represent our members’ interests in many different forums. I will also be engaged with several special statewide projects that I have specialized experience with from earlier in my career: workforce and leadership development, including the ambitious Women of Asphalt initiative, boosting our scholarship reach, getting a state Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards program off the drawing board and more. In closing; I’m thrilled to be on the team. I’ve been warmly welcomed by the members I’ve had the pleasure of meeting my first few months on the job, and I look forward to meeting many more in the months and years ahead. My email is and my cell is 442-400-9697 so when I can assist, please contact me. I look forward to working with you to build a brighter and more prosperous future for our industry. Sincerely,

Bill Knopf Regional Director

Asphalt industry ramps up new promotional campaign: ‘Asphalt Delivers Performance for a Lifetime’


elling the asphalt story, also known as promotion, has a rich history in California going back many decades, and new chapters continue to be written today. The latest promotional campaign for the industry, supported by CalAPA®, is titled “Asphalt Delivers Performance for a Lifetime.” It highlights attributes of asphalt pavements that are most soughtafter by project designers and owners, and noticed and appreciated by the public. The campaign is backed by the latest research, opinion surveys and other data-collection activities that lend credibility to the messages, long a hallmark of the industry. While the campaign may touch on familiar themes, what is new is the most robust and coordinated effort ever undertaken to deploy these messages widely via asphalt industry associations and their member firms. It is born out of a strengthening alliance between the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), the Asphalt Institute and State Asphalt Pavement Associations (SAPA). 8

CalAPA® contributes to pooled funds that underwrite research supporting the campaign, and participates in committees tasked with deployment of the promotional assets. The Asphalt Pavement Alliance, the industry’s marketing arm, is also helping coordinate the deployment of the assets, which are free to use by any CalAPA® member company. “With the ‘Performance for a Lifetime’ campaign, we’re speaking directly to pavement designers and road owners, showing them the many ways asphalt pavements meet their needs,” said Dr. Audrey Copeland, President & CEO of NAPA, a CalAPA® partner. “Our research has shown that road owners want high-performing and long-lasting pavements, which asphalt delivers with unmatched value. By using these materials and amplifying these messages, contractors will help ensure that public agencies at all levels will better understand how asphalt delivers on the promise of performance.” According to the resource toolkit available on a website established to distribute the promotional assets, market

research informed the development of the messaging. The research concluded, as the guide states, “performance means a lot of things to road owners: low initial costs, ease of maintenance, low life-cycle costs, the ability to keep drivers moving without delay, durability, resilience, smoothness, safety, innovation, sustainability, recycled materials, locally sourced materials, and public preference. Taken all together, when it comes to what road owners care about, asphalt pavements deliver Performance for a Lifetime.” The message is communicated in many different ways, and is professionally designed to be consistent and complementary, and resonate with modern audiences. The campaign includes magazinestyle ads, social media-style graphics, downloadable artwork for banners and posters. Infographics that draw upon research from respected entities also are featured in the promotional campaign. All CalAPA® members are encouraged to download these free assets and incorporate them into their own marketing efforts for maximum impact. [ Continued on page 10 ]

According to the Asphalt Pavement Alliance, competition for the time and attention of pavement designers greater than ever, and California in particular has been identified as a target state for promotional activities by the concrete pavement industry. A special “Go To Market” (GTM) Committee established among asphalt industry stakeholders guides the development and deployment of new promotional materials quickly. “The APA believes the ‘Performance for a Lifetime’ campaign to be one of the best initiatives yet developed through the GTM initiative with funding provided by NAPA,” said Asphalt Pavement Alliance National Director Amy Miller. “In a time when the asphalt industry is under attack, it is more important than ever we remind those that have been choosing asphalt as their pavement of choice — owners and engineers — of the benefits that have led them to choose asphalt for so many years.” When it comes to the story of asphalt in California, “so many years” is an understatement. Asphalt first made its appearance during the Ice Age, percolating up through the soil in an area now known as the La Brea Tar Pits, the only active urban fossil dig site in the world. Plants and animals from the last 50,000 years – more than 3.5 million artifacts in all – have been exhumed from the pits, including saber-toothed cats, mammoths and mastadons. Native peoples used asphalt from the pits to improve tools, waterproof canoes and baskets and make decorative items. Educational programs that are part of the La Brea Tar Pits, now a Los Angeles County Museum, continue to teach schoolchildren that the site operated as a commercial oil and asphalt mine from the 1870s until 1924, and the asphalt was sold 10

and shipped throughout California for use in roads. Prehistoric creatures didn’t choose asphalt, but modern road builders did. By the 1930s, the automobile had supplanted horse-powered transportation, and roads and highway were beginning to span the L.A. Basin and across California. When Los Angeles. secured the 1932 Olympic Games, civic boosters and business interests were intent on showing off the emerging metropolis as more than wide sandy beaches and movie studios. They turned to asphalt as a symbol of progress. The Chamber of Commerce entered into an agreement to include a promotional publication as part of the official Olympic program. The program was “wrapped” in a publication called the “California Journal of Development. Promoting asphalt pavements was its centerpiece. The cover featured a photo of an asphalt highway near Shaver Lake, which the caption stated “is typical of scenes along the new Sierra Way, which extends for 800 miles through the heart of the High Sierras.” An article inside touted the emerging route as “regarded as the most magnificent road project ever undertaken in the United States” and drew parallels to the famed Appian Way in ancient Rome (apparently the original “Performance for a Lifetime” route). On Page 4 of the program is a full-page report by the Asphalt Institute titled “Only Asphalt Can Meet These Changed Conditions.” The article, which includes photos of roads and roadwork, touts the flexibility and adaptability of asphalt pavements for a growing state and nation, and also includes a nod to civil engineers: “Progressive engineers, who know from practical experience that there is no phase of highway paving that has not been most successfully met by the use of asphalt, have turned to this California Asphalt Magazine • 2019 Special Promotion Issue


age-old builder.” The article goes on to tout many of the benefits of asphalt pavements that are wellknown today — smooth, durable, cost-effective and recyclable. After World War II, asphalt roads continued to spread far and wide, connecting communities and commerce, and became a cultural phenomenon in the process, most notably via Route 66, the famed “Mother Road” that stretched from Chicago to the Pacific Ocean. The ubiquitous nature of asphalt pavements meant they were promoted by simply being part of the fabric of society, pictured in auto ads, billboards, popular movies and TV shows. Novelist John Steinbeck, who once worked in the industry in California, wrote in a 1947 novel that asphalt “gave a little and came back a little. It softened in the summer and hardened in the winter. And gradually all the roads were capped with shining black that looked silver in the distance.” By 1953, the asphalt industry in California determined it was time to take a more coordinated approach to promoting its product.


The California Asphalt Pavement Association was founded in Los Angeles, and eventually grew to cover the entire state. Alliances were formed with like-minded entities, such as the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), the Asphalt Institute, representing binder suppliers, and other state asphalt pavement associations (SAPAs). The Asphalt Pavement Alliance emerged as the marketing arm to help coordinate the many marketing and promotional activities occurring across the country. While asphalt covers about 93 percent of paved surfaces nationally, and a similar ratio in California, new generations of engineers and designers are entering the workforce and looking for credible information that may not have been passed on by previous generations, hence the latest asphalt promotional campaign, “Performance for a Lifetime.” In addition to the artwork, infographics and other elements of the promotional campaign that are suitable for printing, the campaign has produced promotional videos

that may be viewed on the video page of the CalAPA® website: . The toolkit recommends promoting the campaign via social media channels, adding the advertisements, infographics and videos to company websites, e-newsletter or blog mentions, and trade show graphics and handouts. In addition to the graphics, suggested social media posts and other tools are provided. As the campaign continues to evolve, and the industry continues to listen to project owners, designers and those who travel on asphalt pavements, one thing is certain: Performance for a Lifetime is a new chapter to a familiar story that is carried along on smooth asphalt pavements. CA Russell W. Snyder, CAE, is executive director of the California Asphalt Pavement Association (CalAPA®).

Novelist John Steinbeck, who once worked for CalAPA® member Graniterock in Watsonville, Calif., wrote about asphalt pavements in his 1947 novel “The Wayward Bus.” An excerpt: The highway to San Juan de la Cruz was a black-top road. In the twenties hundreds of miles of concrete highway had been laid down in California, and people had sat back and said, ‘There, that's permanent. That will last as long as the Roman roads and longer, because no grass can grow up through the concrete to break it.” But it wasn't so. The rubber-shod trucks, the pounding automobiles, beat the concrete, and after a while the life went out of it and it began to crumble. Then a side broke off and a hole crushed through and a crack developed and a little ice in the winter spread the crack, so the resisting concrete could not stand the beating of rubber and broke down. Then the county maintenance crews poured tar in the cracks to keep the water out, and that didn't work, and finally they capped the roads with an asphalt and gravel mixture. That did survive, because it offered no stern face to the pounding tires. It gave a little and came back a little. It softened in the summer and hardened in the winter. And gradually all the roads were capped with shining black that looked silver in the distance. CA

New asphalt pavement surfaces typically last 18 years before needing easy-to-perform maintenance, and Perpetual Pavement designs allow the structure of a road to last indefinitely. That’s the value owners and drivers demand, for today, tomorrow and the future.



Assemblyman tours joint industry-agency training & certification program for materials technicians at CSULB By Russell W. Snyder

ometimes you just need to see something in person. On May 10, that person was Assemblyman Patrick O’Donnell, who is chair of the Assembly Education Committee and a member of the Transportation Committee. He returned to the campus of California State University, Long Beach, his alma mater, to witness the convergence of SB1 road-repair work, job-creation, education and accountability. All of those subjects are of great interest to members of the Legislature, and in particular the elected officials who voted for SB1, the Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017. They want to see those billions of tax dollars put into action quickly fixing crumbling pavement and aging bridges, stimulating the economy and providing a steady pipeline of skilled workers to perform the work. Now in Year 2 of operation, the Caltrans Joint Training & Certification Program (JTCP) is training and certifying hundreds of materials technicians to ensure they are performing materials sampling and testing to exacting national and state standards. In the classes, industry and agency personnel learn side-by-side from experienced instructors and are held to the same standards of proficiency. Public agencies that ultimately purchase the construction materials used for transportation improvement projects benefit from greater 14

accountability and confidence that the materials will perform as expected. An in-depth article about the program was featured in the 2019 Quality Issue (Vol. 23, Issue 2) CalAPA®’s California Asphalt magazine. “As a member of the Assembly Transportation Committee and Chair of the Education Committee, I understand the intersection between fixing our roads and educating the employees that perform the work,” O’Donnell told the magazine. “A big part of SB 1 is accountability, and this innovative training and certification program will ensure that the workers who test construction materials are highly qualified, and taxpayers are getting what they pay for.”

After receiving a briefing about Cal State Long Beach by Dr. Forouzan Golshani, dean of the College of Engineering, and Dr. Shadi Saadeh, a professor of engineering and JTCP Program Manager, O’Donnell was led on a tour of the CSULB materials lab to see one of the JTCP classes in action. Participating in the tour was Dan Speer, state materials engineer for Caltrans and head of the Materials Engineering & Testing Services (METS) branch, Tim Greutert, Chief, Office of Roadway Materials Testing for Caltrans, and Jeremy PetersonSelf, the Caltrans engineer in charge of managing the program and overseeing the contract with Cal State Long Beach to deliver the [ Continued on page 16 ]

A teacher by profession, O’Donnell peppered the group with questions about the curriculum, testing, the experience of people going through the program and the outcomes. In addition to ensuring materials tester competence, JTCP also

boasts numerous other derivative benefits, such as improving communication between industry and agency personnel, and even imparting practical knowledge to the university engineering students who assist in the logistics of delivering the program. Two recent CSULB graduates, Saadeh reported, were recently hired by Caltrans, which is filling numerous positions

to fill vacancies due to retirements and the increased workload brought on by SB1. For more information on the Joint Training & Certification Program, visit the CalAPA® website at . The program is actively recruiting for instructors for the program. CA

An appreciation: Life Member Scott Lovejoy By Russell W. Snyder

cott Lovejoy, a giant of the asphalt industry in California who left an even bigger legacy of kindness and service to others in his long and storied career, passed away March 22 after a lengthy battle with lung cancer. He was 72. In addition to serving as part owner and CEO of Paramount Petroleum, Lovejoy was general counsel for the California Independent Refiners Association and served for nine years as chairman or vice chairman of the Southern California-based California Asphalt Pavement Association. Lovejoy is a member of the CalAPA® “Hall of Fame” as a “Life Member,” and was in attendance at the association’s annual dinner in 2015 where he helped welcome a guest speaker that would later go on to become governor of California, Gavin Newsom. Longtime colleague Bill Thorpe noted that, “For many years, Scott was a fixture in the asphalt industry in California.” Lovejoy was co-chair of the California Asphalt Pavement Alliance when a landmark joint defense agreement was struck with the state Attorney General to insulate participants from nuisance lawsuits related to Proposition 65, the 1986 toxic substances reporting law. He also was actively involved in helping to refine an asphalt and oil index with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), which helped reduce risk and bring a level of stability to supply at a time of foreign 18

petroleum market disruptions and price spikes. Lovejoy passed away in Bend, Ore., his home of 14 years after he sold his interest in Paramount Petroleum, which as CEO he helped grow into one of the largest refineries and suppliers of asphalt in the western United States. In a 2018 interview with California Asphalt magazine, Lovejoy recounted the circuitous path that led him to California and the asphalt industry, and the core values and commitment to service that marked his life achievements and followed him into “retirement.” Born in Pontiac, Mich., Lovejoy attended Principia College, a small private school in Southern Illinois, and later transferred to Michigan State, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English. He later went to law school in Stetson University College of Law, graduating No. 1 in his class. He was valedictorian of the Florida Bar Exam in 1972, and was invited to address the Florida Supreme Court, a high honor. He practiced law in Florida for five years, including a clerking for a federal judge and helping craft decisions on landmark environmental cases that helped shape the newly enacted federal Clean Air Act and would influence the subsequent Clean Water Act. Environmental law was growing in significance in the United States, and relatively few lawyers in the nation were, like Lovejoy, experts in the field. Before long, Lovejoy found himself interacting with oil company executives, who found themselves dealing more

and more with environmental issues. He moved to Los Angeles in 1975 to join a law firm that represented oil companies, bringing numerous clients with him. Eventually he sold his portion of the practice and went on a nine-month tour of the country in an RV with his first wife, a sort of mid-career “sabbatical.” “I think the biggest thing that I came away with is that all of the things that we have, we don’t need,” he recalled. “You can be in a motor home with your fishing rod, and two types of clothes, winter clothes and summer clothes, just basic plates, cups, and that’s all you need. I didn’t miss all the things accumulated in our homes, like grandma’s silverware. That was the biggest thing that I came away with. We have too much stuff.” Shortly after returning to California, his first wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and died within six months. In his 40s, Lovejoy was at a turning point in his life and his career. At that point a friend who owned an oil refinery in Nevada invited him to an oil-related business venture. The venture ultimately did not proceed as expected, but another colleague hired him to be vice president for business development for a subsidiary of

California Asphalt Magazine • 2019 Special Promotion Issue

Enron. Ultimately, he went into partnership with his Enron boss, and two others to purchase Paramount refinery. As the CEO, he helped Paramount acquire facilities in California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Nevada, becoming one of the largest refineries on the West Coast, and honored by the U.S. Military as a top supplier of petroleum products to the military. In the go-go growth days of the 1980s and 1990s, Lovejoy and his partners never lost sight of serving customers and treated everyone, including competitors, with respect. His partner, Mark Milano, was the COO and master marketer. “If we had trouble getting supply, he’d bring rail cars in from Canada, from wherever, to make sure we supplied our customers,” Lovejoy remembered. “He did a wonderful job.” One of Lovejoy’s competitors was Juan Forster with Huntway refining (now Valero), who is also retired and a prominent CalAPA® “Life Member.” “He and I worked together when we were competitors,” Lovejoy said. “When he had a refinery unit go down, we helped supply his customers. When we had a refinery unit go down, he would help supply ours.” As a longtime member of the CalAPA® Board of Directors in Southern California, Lovejoy also was a steadfast supporter of the asphalt industry and firm believer in collective action to get things done and represent the industry. “I was, and am, a big believer that working together from the industry side gave us much more clout,” Lovejoy said. “Even big companies benefit from being part of an organization that works out internally a lot of the disputes before you make the presentation to Caltrans or before you have to go making changes in mix design and so forth. You’ve got to work it out between the members. Once you’ve got that done, then you can

go with a united front that Caltrans learned has to be seriously considered.” Lovejoy also worked to lay the foundation for a statewide merger of the two regional asphalt associations, even working on it a year after his retirement. The union ultimately took place in 2012. By 2005, when a Texas energy company named Alon came calling, the offer to sell paramount was too hard to pass up. “We sold out completely, overnight, and we went from working in the asphalt business, every day, all day, to nothing,” Lovejoy recalled. The financial windfall, or “liquidity event” as Lovejoy referred to it, enabled he and his second wife, Kristy, to relocate to Bend, Ore., where Kristy had attended high school and had extended family. “Now that I didn’t have a job, I could pretty much go anywhere I wanted to, so that’s where we decided to move.” A relaxed retirement in the verdant Pacific Northwest would not be in the cards, however. “So we moved up there, and Kristy, after a few weeks, said, ‘Scott, you can’t sit home and read the paper all day, every day, you’ve got to get something to do out there. You’re setting a bad example for the kids.’” So, Lovejoy recalled with a chuckle, “I went and rented an office, and I sat there and read the paper all day, every day, and she was happy because I was out of the house.”

In reality, however, Lovejoy’s life had some unexpected twists and turns ahead. It started when he invested in a vacant piece of land near his home that was zoned to be developed into a commercial shopping center. When the recession hit in the late 2000s, his investment partners backed out, and in short order so did the supermarket and other businesses that had signed letters of intent to occupy the center once built. “So now I own a big empty shopping center” that has yet to be built, Lovejoy recalled ruefully. The contractor had a signed contract to begin construction, so Lovejoy forged ahead, building the shopping center and ultimately building and operating the grocery store himself. As it turns out, Lovejoy’s great grandfather, Charles Earl Lovejoy, operated a grocery store in the Midwest, as did his father before him, dating back to 1874, when groceries were delivered with a horse-drawn cart. “So I said to myself, let’s see if there is any genetic connection, so I got into another business I didn’t know anything about.” C.E. Lovejoy’s market opened up to modest business – it was a recession, after all – and eventually tenants were secured for most of the rest of the shopping center. A decade later the venture finally emerged from the red, and provided dozens of jobs in a community hit hard by the recession. 19

“But Kristy and I both decided, rather than walking away from it, which we could have — and in just dollars and cents we should have – but we couldn’t. It was 30 or so families we were supporting. They had kids in school. The recession hit hard, but we kept it open, just because of that. We will probably never in my lifetime make up all the losses that we had, but I have a good feeling. I think they would be proud that our motivation was pure.” During this time Lovejoy also served on the board of directors and as chairman of the Seven Peaks School in his community. In 2018 he was presented with a special “Chairman Emeritus Award” in front of parents, children and other well-wishers. A school newsletter reported that Seven Peaks School Co-Founder Carol Tobey made the announcement and presented the award during the school’s “Re-Enrollment Night” event. “Scott is a dear friend, an incredible man with a great heart, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this special recognition,” the newsletter quoted Tobey as saying. It went on to report: “Humbled and soft-spoken in his manner, Lovejoy took to the podium and shared some of his heartfelt thoughts. ‘Thank you very much for this honor. I deeply appreciate receiving it from Seven Peaks, a school which our family dearly loves.’ 20

“Reflecting on his past work and experience with Seven Peaks: ‘I spent nine years on the Board with others who were as committed to this school as anyone in this room. I was honored to serve with them. Each Board member made major contributions to the success of our initiatives and projects, as well as balancing the budget and setting policy. Only the efforts of dedicated, committed parents can accomplish what we all seek for our school.’” The newsletter goes on to quote Lovejoy describing the dedication of volunteers and parents that support the school, which will sound familiar to those who recall Lovejoy’s service and commitment to the betterment of the asphalt industry. “’I’m often asked, why do you love this school so much? As with most things one loves, there are many reasons,” noted Lovejoy. “For one thing, we recognize the immense value that comes from the academic rigor and individual attention given to our children. For another, the great community of like-minded parents who have joined together to support and benefit our most precious assets: our children.” “’The parents and families at Seven Peaks set a high standard, and that standard is supported by our entire community, which in turn benefits all our children.’” The newsletter reported that “Lovejoy’s remarks received a standing ovation.”

During his 2018 interview with California Asphalt magazine, Lovejoy was open about the serious lung cancer diagnosis that would ultimately claim his life a year later, yet was serene and at peace with his life’s path, contributions and legacy. “Maybe some day we’ll get credit from one who is wise and knows all,” he said at one point. He encouraged the next generation of leaders of CalAPA® to focus on work-force development, leadership and succession-planning. “Try to develop people. Show the members that you are giving back, so that the association they have invested in is giving back, helping to train their people.” Of his own life dedicated to those very principles, he added softly but firmly, “I feel good about it.” Lovejoy is survived by his wife, Kristy, and their three children, Tyler, Logan and Kimberly; his son, Travis, and three grandchildren, Nathan, Flynn and Ashley; and his sister, Terry. The memorial service and celebration of life for Winfield Scott Lovejoy III was held April 5 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 2355 NW Shevlin Park Road, Bend, Ore. The mortuary handling the services for receiving messages of condolence and flowers is: Niswonger-Reynolds Mortuary in Bend, Ore. CA Russell W. Snyder, CAE, is executive director of the California Asphalt Pavement Association (CalAPA®).

CalAPA members travel to the nation’s Capitol in search of elusive federal transportation deal


By Russell W. Snyder

ike a driver stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, the search for a long-term federal transportation infrastructure plan has been characterized in recent years by maddeningly slow progress and more stops than starts. Undaunted, CalAPA members joined hundreds of other like-minded transportation infrastructure advocates May 14-15 at the nation’s capital for the Transportation Construction Coalition “Fly-in” seeking to lay the foundation for bipartisan cooperation on a prudent and sustainable way to pay for neglected roads, bridges and other vital infrastructure. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) addressed a packed hotel ballroom during the opening of the event, saying “this is really a pivotal moment for everyone in this room, for our country.” Of the prospects of a major infrastructure deal happening this year, she said, “I’m confident it will happen.” She also alluded to her highly publicized White House meeting on April 30 where she and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said President Trump proposed a $2 trillion price tag for a comprehensive infrastructure deal, although details on how to pay for it remain to be worked out. “The good news is,” Pelosi said, “the president is recommitting to getting this done.” 22

“The most expensive maintenance is no maintenance,” Pelosi added, “and that is what we are facing in many situations around the country.” Earlier in the program, new Federal Highway Administrator Nicole Nason spoke of her agency’s priorities of improving safety, speeding infrastructure dollars to construction with “less duplication of effort” and emphasizing research and innovation. Jobs will be a critical component to all that work, she said. “Our highway system depends on qualified workers.” On Capitol Hill, however, optimism was muted as CalAPA members and others met with elected officials and staffers in congressional offices to make the case for immediate action. Fiscal conservatives and others have balked at the main vehicle to pay for infrastructure, hiking the federal gas tax, and other financing mechanisms fall far short of bridging the funding gap. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-CA), a member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, was one of many who cited the “payfors” as the biggest challenge facing a grand deal on infrastructure, which he said “would be great for everyone.” He met with the CalAPA delegation in his office and offered his frank assessment of the current political climate in Washington and prospects for a bipartisan agreement. “I’m hopeful,” he said, “but not so optimistic.”

The assessment turned out to be prophetic as President Trump walked out of a follow-up meeting with Congressional leaders on May 22, triggering finger-pointing on all sides. That unwelcome development appeared to doom any chance for meaningful progress on infrastructure investment in 2019, and it is widely believed that no infrastructure deal is possible in 2020, an election year. CalAPA members and others, meanwhile, continued to keep the pressure on, much like they did for many years in California that ultimately resulted in the passage in 2017 of SB1, the $50 billion “Road Repair & Accountability Act” that included fuel tax and fee hikes. “I would encourage every member to participate in the CalAPA fly-ins, whether in D.C or Sacramento,” said Steve Ward with Pavement Recycling Systems, who participated in both. “I know it seems futile at times, but our legislators and their staff need to hear from us face-to-face, and I believe the effect is cumulative and eventually sinks in if we keep the pressure on. It is also very educational for those of us who participate. We learn much about who is representing us!”

Added Gary Johnson with CalAPA member Granite Construction: “The rank and file in both parties understand the critical need and are ready to support more infrastructure investment, but it’s going to take real policy leadership from the House, Senate and the president to get it done. I’m not sure they can do that.” Katrina Lynch, another TCC Fly-in participant from Intermountain, a division of Granite Construction, offered a similar assessment. “Virtually everyone agrees on the need for an infrastructure bill, or at the very least, a long-term highway reauthorization,” Lynch said. “However, there seems to be

little confidence that Congress and the Administration will agree on the best way to fund either of those bills. There was general agreement that it would be hard to increase the gas tax, particularly if the Administration does not come out and strongly support an increase in the tax. On the other hand, virtually everyone agreed that while conceptually a VMT (Vehicle Miles Travelled fee structure) is the direction we should move in the future, virtually no one felt that system was ‘ready for prime time.’” Veteran political advisors, nevertheless, urged persistent agitation with elected officials on the federal infrastructure issue.

CIFAC paves the way to public contract code compliance, develops mobile phone reporting app By Michelle Tucker, Special to California Asphalt


or over 40 years, CIFAC has led the way in preventing public agencies from using force account/ public agency crews to perform construction work. As the defender of the Public Contract Code and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the competitive bidding system, our dedication to compliance is steadfast. Through support from our partner contractors, associations and unions, we are able to monitor, investigate and file complaints against agencies who violate the PCC provisions. You may ask yourself why this is necessary. Considering the many rules and regulations that must be followed, it’s easy to forget why they were created in the first place. Consider this a CIFAC refresher course. The public contracting laws were created for the following reasons: to ensure a uniform bid process, to ensure all qualified bidders have the opportunity to submit bids on projects, to eliminate favoritism, fraud and corruption in the awarding of contracts and to stimulate advantageous project prices by way of competition. The Code outlines force account limits for agencies, where work under the limit may be performed by the agency or may be completed by negotiated contract. These limits were established so that agencies can perform minor maintenance and repair work. Above those limits, most public projects must be competitively bid in a fair, transparent and objective manner. It is understandable that agencies are allowed to fill a pothole or trim a hedge and that more complicated construction projects should be 24

performed by licensed and insured contractors with the expertise to perform the work. So as a contractor, if you were denied the opportunity to submit a bid on a project that you knew you had the skills and licensing to complete, how would that make you feel? Or if you knew that an agency only used their “preferred” contractor on all their projects with no bidding that it would be unfair. Or, if unlicensed, often inexperienced crews, such as force account, were performing all their own projects rather than contracting out, I’m sure that would be frustrating. These are just a few examples of what we investigate, all with the intention of increasing job opportunities for you. CIFAC’s job is to act as the compliance organization for the California Public Contract Code. There is no state agency that performs this oversight. Our presence is also a deterrent that keeps local government officials from crossing the line into non-compliance. Moving forward: I’m enthusiastic to report that CIFAC will be introducing a brand new violation reporting application that has many new features that will result in faster processing of violations

and rapid communication back to the reporting party. This new app will be compatible with Apple iPhones, tablets, and android mobile devices. Industry members, contractors, union business agents, laborers, carpenters, masons, builders’ exchanges, and other compliance organizations can use it easily. The focus of the app is to gather as much information as possible as quickly as possible. It includes the ability to pinpoint the jobsite via GPS, take, upload, and send photographs, maximize data input opportunities and allow CIFAC’s Regional Compliance Managers to communicate back to the reporting party with ease. Most importantly, there is total anonymity for the app user. The more information we receive from the sender on the spot, the faster we can make a determination whether the public agency is non-compliant. Executive Director Tucker and Bay Area Regional Compliance Manager Matt Hilliard are working on it and expect a rollout in early summer 2019.

collectively influenced the San Mateo Foster City School District to bid a new school construction project worth over $70,000,000. Highlights in Southern California included: influenced the City of Glendora to rebid a $330,000 project that the city had intended on exempting from prevailing wage and negotiating a contract; to ensuring the City of Pismo Beach and South Gate competitively bid a $140,000 project and a $240,000 project rather than issuing change orders for work not included in the original scopes of other contracts.

INDUSTRY NEWS CalAPA hosts contractors membership dinner On May 14, 38 representatives of the California Asphalt Pavement Association gathered for an evening of networking, education, and outstanding cuisine at the famed Los Angeles steakhouse, the Dal Rae at the association’s first regional dinner of 2019. CalAPA has both a Southern California Paving Contractors Committee and a Northern California Paving Contractors Committee and this meeting was for the Southern California group, and was open to producer, refiner, supplier and associate members as well. Southern California Contractors’ Committee Chairman Steve Cota of Patriot Risk Services led off the program thanking everyone for attending during the busy paving season. Steve then introduced Steve Marvin, PE of Labelle-Marvin for a “technical” tidbit, but Steve

switched things up a little bit this time with more of a historical perspective with a look at asphalt through the millennia as the pavement material of choice. Marvin was followed by Daniel Media, from Parsell & Getters, who delivered an outstanding, and very timely, OSHA Safety Update. The two guest presentations were followed by dinner. Everyone raved about the Pepper Filets! After dinner, and to close the evening, new CalAPA Regional Director Bill Knopf introduced his colleagues in the room, CalAPA Technical Director Brandon Milar, PE, and Kerry Hoover, publisher of California Asphalt magazine, and reviewed some of the upcoming events on the association’s calendar. Knopf then delivered a brief presentation on the benefits of executive partnering with state DOTs, based on his experience

Following the formal adjournment of the meeting, it was remarkable how many of our 38 attendees “stuck around” the Dal Rae either in the meeting room itself, in the lounge, or in some cases, outside on the parking lot on a warm, L.A. night. The meeting provided our attendees a chance to reconnect with one another; at the end of the day, we’re all in the people business! Associations are all about sharing common solutions to common problems. CalAPA members clearly enjoy one another’s company. And a good steak dinner.
