PROJECT SCHEDULE:
Construction will begin in late March and will continue through May. Construction activities will
take place during both daytime and nighttime hours.
As with any complex construction project, there is a possibility that the schedule could be
impacted by weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
PROJECT BENEFITS
Rubberized asphalt, or “quiet pavement,” is composed of regular asphalt paving mixed with
used, ground tires. Rubberized asphalt is environmentally friendly; resurfacing projects such as
this recycle thousands of used tires. ADOT has successfully engineered the use of more than 10
million waste tires into over 2,500 miles of state highways. Quiet pavement is smoother and
quieter than conventional asphalt paving. Quiet pavement reduces tire noise by an average of
four decibels.
