New DOT Secretary Foxx highlights WMA

Speaking-at-swearing-in-with-family-VP

New DOT Secretary, Anthony Foxx, highlighted warm mix asphalt (WMA) during his public swearing-in at DOT headquarters last week as an example of how the US DOT has been getting better and better at improving the way we deliver the benefits of transportation to the American people.

On the Fast Lane Blog, he highlights that "the Federal Highway Administration’s Every Day Counts initiative has been promoting innovation and saving money on projects across the country. One tool in this initiative is Warm Mix Asphalt. And, while that may not be a household phrase, but it's quietly saving taxpayers millions every year. Warm Mix Asphalt is a new paving technology that allows asphalt to be produced and placed on the road at a lower temperature. It uses less fuel, reduces emissions, and extends the paving season into colder weeks, which allows road crews to keep working longer. 

Under Every Day Counts, the use of Warm Mix has skyrocketed, already resulting in an estimated savings of more than $100 million. By 2020, we project that Warm Mix Asphalt will save more than $3.5 billion dollars---simply by using less fuel in the production and placement of asphalt."
