Overview

There are more than 2 million miles of paved roads in the United States, and an astounding 94 percent are surfaced with asphalt. Is this way of building roads a sustainable one? The answer is a resounding YES.

The asphalt industry is already America’s number one recycler. In fact, asphalt pavement is 100 percent recyclable and reusable and it is America’s most reused pavement material. Thanks to new technologies known as “warm-mix” asphalt, a mix that can be produced at one of our three plants in Central Virginia and placed on roads at reduced temperatures. By using this innovation, we are now able to drastically diminish emissions, save fuel and improve the quality and lengthen the life span of pavement. Warm-mix is a major stepping stone in sustainable development, while simultaneously reducing the carbon footprint of the paving industry.
