VDOT's Robert Wilson poses with a stretch of the new pavement blend on the Prince William County Parkway near Manassas.
Hear that? What? You say you don't hear anything? That's the sound (or lack of sound) made by a new blend of pavement designed to absorb car noise. Virginia Department of Transportation officials have tested it out on one road in Manassas and are testing it out on several others. If they're successful, this new pavement could be all over the state, maybe even the country.
