The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded the city of Columbus, Ohio, a $156,775 grant to help it recycle 3,500 tons of asphalt shingles into pavement that will be used to resurface city streets. The grant will be used to help the state’s capital pay for the recycled asphalt shingles (RAS), which will be added to the hot asphalt mix used to repave about 112 roads throughout Columbus.
The Ohio EPA says the city has not previously used RAS as part of the road surface mix. The grant money will help Columbus to evaluate the effectiveness of adding residential recycled shingles on a variety of road types.
