Title:GreenScapes Success Story: Recycled Rubber Raises the Road
Document Date:07/01/2003
Description:This GreenScapes Success Story discusses construction of the new Mud Pond Inlet Bridge by the Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) by building with waste. To support the roadbed, the design team called for nearly 170,000 previously used shredded tires—20 percent of the waste tires generated in Maine in a year—along with geotextiles, a synthetic material that allows the exchange of water and air. The designers also incorporated old bridge railings and roadside guard rails from an ongoing highway bridge rehabilitation project rather than using new metal.
