Certificate of Achievement from International Surfacing Systems for recycling an estimated 60,371 tires by resurfacing 724,429 square yards of city streets with an asphalt rubber cape seal from 2003 through 2008. Over ten years ago, City Engineers switched from conventional chip seal to rubberized chip seal, specifying recycled tires be used in the rubber component. As an early adopter of this green technology, Redwood City was one of the first cities on the Peninsula to use recyled tires to resurface city streets.
2007 Excellence in Transportation Award from the California Department of Transportation for the Route 101/Ralston Avenue Interchange Reconstruction project.
