Asphalt covers more than 94 percent of the paved streets in the US, but have we gone down the wrong road with our choice of building material? Dutch firm VolkerWessels thinks so and has unveiled plans for roads crafted from recycled plastic, claiming the approach would significantly cut construction and maintenance time, as well as extend their expected lifespan.

First up, it is claimed the road could better withstand extreme temperatures, as low as -40° C (-40° F) and as high as 80° C (176° F). It would also be more resistant to corrosion and last three times as long as asphalt, while minimizing the need for maintenance (otherwise known as pesky roadworks and detours).

Drawdown to Target Eurasian Water Milfoil - In an effort to freeze out the roots of the invasive species Eurasian water milfoil, the Chippewa Flowage will be drawn down five feet from its normal elevation. There will also be a slow winter drawdown that will eventually leave the flowage at an eight foot overall reduction in elevation.
