City to use demolition debris to build, pave roads
Published: October 30,2013
GREENWOOD — The city of Greenwood will use debris from the Russell Building for local road repairs and paving projects.
The building was recently torn down. The city hauled off concrete and crushed brick.
Mayor Carolyn McAdams tells the Greenwood Commonwealth that the city will save money.
McAdams says the city grinds its own limestone about twice a year and uses it to patch roads and pave alleyways. It also has been laid on the Yazoo River Trail, which runs along the north bank of the Mississippi River.
McAdams says limestone is expensive so they look for other sources of it.
McAdams says the city stores the debris until it accumulates enough to grind up.
