Building roads from recycled plastics

Sahadat Hossain and Warda Ashraf of the College of Engineering are combining their two areas of expertise—recycling and asphalt/concrete, respectively—to lead a two-year, $342,588 feasibility study on building plastic roads, funded by the Texas Department of Transportation.

The roads wouldn’t be made entirely of recycled plastic, but instead mixed with asphalt for an ideal consistency to keep the road safe for motorists and help it last longer, cost less, and avoid cracking.
