|Asphalt saves energy consumed by the traveling public|

Reducing congestion-which wastes fuel-by constructing asphalt pavements just makes sense. Asphalt pavements are faster to construct and rehabilitate.
Asphalt pavement rehabilitation can be accomplished during off-peak hours. On highly traveled routes, much of this work can be done at night. One or more lanes can be closed after the evening rush hour, milled for recycling, resurfaced, and then opened for traffic the following morning. Most motorists do not have to deal with the inconvenience of construction delay.
Because a new or newly rehabilitated asphalt pavement can be opened to traffic as soon as it has been compacted and cooled, there is no question of waiting for days or weeks, with traffic being detoured or squeezed into fewer lanes, for the material to cure.
Our mission is to improve the quality of asphalt and expand its use.
