Live Community Coverage Tour Denver City Sneak Peak

Wednesday we continue our Live Community Coverage Tour as we head into Denver City. Every time you drive, you may be driving across several pieces of Denver City. That's because the asphalt on Denver City streets is made of recycled tires. When tires are used, streets can last five to 20 times longer and reduce noise by seventy-percent. Denver city is home to the plant that helps make that possible, State Rubber and Environmental Solutions. The plant takes rubber tires, shreds them, grinds them up and removes the fiber and steel. Then they are transformed into what looks like fine dust or talcum powder. It's then blended up to make asphalt.

Join Karin and Abner tonight on NewsChannel 11 at Six and Ten as the Community Coverage Tour rolls on in Denver City. You'll find out why oil is so important to this West Texas town, why spicy foods may be sprinkled with something from Denver City and we'll tell you what happened when Elvis Presley got stranded in this very town.
