Asphalt is one of the most familiar, universally used materials in our world. The uncommon common substance is part of the Interstate highways that get us across the country. Asphalt roads bring us home, and asphalt driveways add to the beauty and value of our neighborhoods. The 4,000 asphalt plants across the country are part of our communities, and the production of 500 million tons of asphalt pavement material every year supports more than 300,000 American jobs.
