Columbia, MO's Stadium Boulevard is Getting Paved with Plastic

(1/2) > >>

kernals12:
The University of Missouri, in partnership with the Missouri Department of Transportation and Dow, is paving 2 miles of Stadium Boulevard with a new type of asphalt that incorporates waste plastic. In addition to diverting a large amount of plastic from landfills, this apparently will make the roads last longer. They're hoping to go 12 to 15 years before needing to be resurfaced instead of the normal 10.

I've done a few threads about plastic asphalt, but not this particular application.

Could use one of those threads as a "megathread" for plastic asphalt, and post news about it into that one thread, instead of making a new one for each application.

So, instead of this plastic being contained in a landfill, it will be dispersed into the environment gradually, tiny bit by tiny bit, as the asphalt wears?
