CalRecycle awarded the City of Newport Beach $216,000 for its Rubberized Pavement Grant, which diverts tires from California landfills.  Public Works recently completed pavement rehabilitation on MacArthur Blvd, University Drive, Bison Avenue, Ford Road, Bonita Canyon Drive and San Joaquin Hills Road utilizing rubberized asphalt. Improvements include grinding and overlaying the deteriorating asphalt concrete pavement with Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix. Some of the advantages of using this hybrid material include enhanced aesthetics, reduced road noise, and durability. These projects have diverted more than 21,000 California waste tires from the waste stream.

Each year, the State of California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) provides the Rubberized Pavement Grant Program to promote markets for recycled-content surfacing products derived from waste tires generated in California. This is in an effort to decrease the adverse environmental impacts created by unlawful disposal and stockpiling of waste tires.

Rubberized asphalt is a proven road paving material that has been used in California since the 1970’s. It is made by blending ground tire rubber with asphalt binder, which is mixed with conventional aggregate materials.

Future Pavement Rehabilitation projects scheduled to utilize grant funding include East Coast Highway, Jamboree Road and another portion of Marguerite Avenue (Coast Hwy to 5th.)
