Fewer Potholes Next Season? Canton to Make Its Own Asphalt for Repairs

CANTON, Ohio (New2s Talk 1480 WHBC) – The city of Canton is getting into the asphalt business.

City Council has agreed to purchase an asphalt recycler.

With that, the street or water department can make hot asphalt year-round.

Local asphalt plants typically provide only cold patch during the cooler months.

Mayor Tom Bernabei says that’s an inferior product.

The city is spending $200,000 for the equipment.
