Green Lanes on S.E. 15th at 4th Street and 5th Street

While riding around today I spotted somebody ironing the road.

I stopped and talked with Marco Vojcanin from Flint Trading, Thomasville NC. He was out supervising Minneapolis’ first application of Preformed Thermoplastic. While this material has been used in Minnesota before, it hasn’t been green and hasn’t been put in such high-traffic areas so it will be interesting to see how long it lasts. Marco suggested that the stuff lasts 6-8 years, but given the unique application here he wouldn’t make a guess.
