SCHOOLCRAFT, MI -- Thousands of scrap rubber tires have been recycled and repurposed into material used in construction of a local road.
Nearly 14,000 recycled tires were used during construction on West W Avenue from the Schoolcraft village limits to Portage Road in early August, implementing rubber technology never used before in the United States, according to a press release from the Road Commission of Kalamazoo County.
"Scrap tire innovation is nothing new to the state, however the type of recycled tire material used for this project has not been used here before," Managing Director Joanna Johnson said.
