When You’re Done with That Old Road, Recycle It

The Virginia Department of Transportation is on a recycling tear. Not satisfied with mere cans and bottles, the agency is recycling an entire stretch of Interstate 81 in Augusta County. Believed to be the first time that three different road recycling procedures have been used in combination, the project will take two-thirds less time than conventional road reconstruction. It will also save millions of dollars, and reduce the carbon footprint associated with construction vehicles and equipment.
