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. The 2020 construction season brings both continuity and change to InRoads. Our award- winning portable asphalt division continues to excel in building smooth, durable asphalt projects across the State of Iowa. The InRoads Asphalt Milling Division is a leader in the market of asphalt scarification for city, county, commercial and Iowa DOT projects. This year marks the introduction of the InRoads Metro Division. InRoads Metro is anchored by a state-of-the-art Astec Double Barrel asphalt plant centrally located on Interstate 80 in Des Moines, IA. This 17-acre property will house the Metro Urban Quarry and recycling yard for both asphalt and concrete products. The new Metro asphalt plant, Urban Quarry and paving crew will provide the citizens of Des Moines and surrounding communities with the same high-quality materials and workmanship that the InRoads name has come to signify. InRoads knows its employees – you are not another number here. InRoads knows the sacrifice employees make with time away from their families and rewards its employees with flexibility, competitive pay, and quality benefits. We work together; we look out for each other. Together, the InRoads family is paving it forward through the quality of our work, the integrity of our employees and the communities we serve.
