Report Says Less Coal Fly Ash Will Raise Construction Costs

September 20, 2011

A new study by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation(ARTBA-TDF) says construction costs of roads, bridges and runways would increase by approximately $104.6 billion over the next 20 years if coal fly ash is no longer available as a transportation construction building material. It was compiled in anticipation of new proposed disposal regulations that could limit or eliminate fly ash availability.
