CalRecycle Grant: Murrieta Hot Springs Road and Hancock Avenue Rehabilitation Project
The City of Murrieta Conducted its annual pavement rehabilitation project (CIP 8043) on Murrieta Hot Springs Road and Hancock Avenue funded in part by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery's (CalRecycle) Rubberized Pavement Grant Program. By utilizing this grant, it ensures that the crumb rubber used in the Rubberized Hot Mix Asphalt (RHMA) is made from post-consumer and/or post-industrial scrap rubber which originated from eligible California waste tires. Adding rubber to asphalt not only recycles the waste tires but also extends the longevity of the asphalt pavement. The City of Murrieta was awarded a Grant from CalRecycle in the amount of $123,200. In total, by utilizing the Grant from CalRecycle and using RHMA vs. traditional hot mix asphalt, the City of Murrieta and CalRecycle successfully repurposed 303,136.56 pounds of recycled rubber which equates to a total of 25,261 California tires repurposed in the RHMA.
