Glowing roads are here!

    Have you ever wondered if there was a way for our paths and roads to provide their own lighting and not need lighting from above.


 An article in the Scientific America has an interesting possibility down the road.  Now there is research to find materials to put in asphalt to melt snow on contact.

An artist's conception of engineer Scott Bursaw's proposed solar roadway, which would resist ice and snow.

Maybe solar can be the answer.  Think how county budgets could no longer have to put in contingency funds for road clearing.  And road crews wouldn't have to put in overtime.

Did you see this article where they are making part of old Rt 66 in Missouri a solar road?
