Crews are applying a special crumb rubber asphalt mix, incorporating shredded tires for a smoother, quieter ride. Crumb rubber lasts twice as long as traditional asphalt pavement while also creating a better friction surface with less wet weather splashing. And it also recycles used tires that otherwise would end-up in a landfill.

Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is 96 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion by mid-July.
