scrap rubber in asphalt

DICKINSON COUNTY, MI--   A portion of U.P. roadway that uses pieces of old rubber tires has performed well over the past two years.

The project focused on a stretch of County Road 607 in Dickinson County. In 2019 three 3,300-foot sections were paved: one section with conventional asphalt, one with half engineered crumb rubber and another with rubber in the base and top layers.
