Rubber Sidewalks?

Well, it does make sense when you think about it. Rubber’s durable, and a heckuva lot more flexible than concrete, so that explains why DC is testing it in Northwest as a sidewalk replacement. It won’t take chalk, which means that one childhood tradition might disappear if they decide it works. The program’s a test to see if the more expensive sidewalks will be more durable than the usual concrete, proportionate to the extra cost.

I’m all for brand new sidewalks, maybe the Park service ought to try it for down by the Tidal Basin during the Cherry Blossom season?
