WSDOT Using 'Greener' Asphalt For Project

Generally, using hot mix asphalt is the standard in our area for paving jobs, except for patching potholes and cracks in the winter when asphalt plants are shut down for the season.

The Washington State Department of Transportation is trying something different though, warm mix asphalt, that they say is a greener way to pave. The story is on the WSDOT blog.
