Every year, CalRecycle makes funding available to municipalities to help fund the construction of rubberized asphalt-concrete roads. The progam is sustained by the efficient utilization of disposed automobile tires in California. The rubber from the tires is mixed into an asphalt-concrete blend to form pavement. Typically, a rubberized asphalt-concrete road generates less roadway noise than a standard ashpalt-concrete road. Rubberized asphalt-concrete is often used in or around residential areas to mitigate any noise created by traveling motorists.
2014-15 CalRecycle Rubberized Asphalt Contract Program
Here are some photos from the installation of rubberized asphalt-concrete on Villa Woods Drive and Stone Avenue. The City was awarded funds through CalRecycle's Rubberized Asphalt Concrete program 2014-15 cycle year to help pay for this project.
2015-16 Cal Recycle Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Program
With assistance from CalRecycle's funding opportunities, the City used rubberized asphalt concrete on the Limonite Avenue Widening and Van Buren Boulevard Rehabilitation projects. Combined, both projects enabled the City to divert 25,456 tires away from landfills!
