Most of us take our roads and highways for granted. Theyre just there and we only really pay attention when we encounter frustrating detours or potholes. This article provides a history of roads dating back 10,000 years and a glimpse of what the future will be like.

Heres the most interesting area to me:

Rubber all those thousands of used tires we see everywhere
Plastic a way to recycles those millions of items tossed away daily
Food scraps (?) coffee grounds?????
6. Gravel is back.
All of it with some additional info @ https://www.popsci.com/history-futur...feature#page-8
