Machine-made asphalt

Piles of ground-up asphalt from road resurfacings earlier in 2008 were put in a heating machine to be recycled into usable asphalt Tuesday morning.

The machine, which heats the asphalt to between 250 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit, is manufactured to process seven tons each hour.

Workers can fill in potholes and patch up small water-line breaks with the asphalt from the machine.
