PennDOT's Asphalt Recycling Program takes what may otherwise be waste materials from Interstate 81 and puts them to use on smaller and rural state roads. When the rocks arrive from construction sites to the department's processing site on Hillside Drive in Clarks Summit, they are first put through a grinder, then transferred to a pugmill (shown) which mixes them with oil, water and 2B stone. From there, the finished product is loaded into dump trucks and taken to the local consturction sites, dumped into the paver and laid on the road.
