Webster Co. roads to be resurfaced with rubber modified asphalt

Starting Thursday, two Webster County roads will be resurfaced using material that once traveled those roads.

Sebree-Slaughters Rd. and Watkins-Sebree Rd., both near Sebree, will be resurfaced using rubber modified asphalt.

The compound is mostly made from old tires.

Webster County officials said the compound is both environmentally friendly and could cut down on noise from passing vehicles.

Rubber modified asphalt is already in use in other states in the south and west.

County officials said the compound could be used on other county roads depending on available grants to pay for it.
