21st Century Street Improvements

Orange is now where “the rubber meets the road, ” thanks to a grant from CalRecycle, the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery. A two-year long street rehabilitation project by our Public Works Department repaved several of our streets using a material made from used, ground-up tires. The new rubberized asphalt will wear better, last longer, require less maintenance, and reduce road noise.

The eleven streets, which include sections of Glassell, Katella, Tustin, Meats, and Batavia, were resurfaced with new material containing rubber from nearly 60,000 tires. This is over 718,000 pounds of waste rubber which would have otherwise been dumped into one of our State’s landfills.

Keeping our infrastructure in good working order, while also reducing the amount of waste being dumped into our landfills, is just another great reason why Orange is a great place to live, work, and shop.
