Scrap tires used in road pavement

SCHOOLCRAFT, Mich. (AP) — There’s rubber in a road in southwestern Michigan.

Nearly 14,000 scrap tires have been recycled on a pavement project on West W Avenue in Schoolcraft in Kalamazoo County.

The pavement designs were created at Michigan Technological University labs. The Kalamazoo Gazette reports students traveled to Kalamazoo to watch the construction process earlier in August.
