Concrete Crushing

In Harrison Court, big chunks of concrete debris from Hurricane Katrina demolition in the background are being crushed into sand and small rocks, foreground.  American Paving and Asphalt Inc., Lafayette, Ind., began the 70-day project Feb. 5.  Not only are the pulverized materials being used for road bases, underground utility fill and underslab foundation fill during base housing construction, but recycling saves money by eliminating the need to send the debris to landfills.
