Nov. 5, 2019—Los Angeles is looking to reduce maintenance of its roads through plastic asphalt, reported CNET.

Plastic asphalt is a relatively recent development that uses recycled plastics to both improve the performance characteristics of regular blacktop and reduce the cost of making it.

Los Angeles is partnering with Technisoil to test one busy downtown block area. 

Technisoil's founder, Sean Weaver, explained in an interview with Construction Climate Challenge that plastic asphalt is so durable because of its improved flexibility characteristics.
