Menifee in Pictures: Paving Project Uses Recycled Products

Crews today worked on the final phase of paving the newly widened Newport Road, using an environment-friendly mixture of ground-up pavement and recycled tires.

According to a City of Menifee news release, this helped reduce costs and maximized recycling of materials. Menifee received a $125,000 grant from CalRecycle, the state's recycling agency, to help pay for the technology.

A one-mile stretch of Newport Road from Menifee Road to Antelope Road is now three lanes wide in each direction.
