Lane is among the leading producers of bituminous concrete in the country with an annual production typically exceeding 6 million tons. This paving material is produced in Lane owned and operated asphalt plants and most of this material is also placed by Lane paving crews using Lane equipment. Quality is monitored and maintained by Lane Quality Control Technicians in Lane on-site laboratories using State-of-the-Art equipment.

The environment is an important consideration to us in the manufacture of Bituminous Concrete.
- Lane uses recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) as much as possible to reduce the need for virgin aggregate and liquid asphalt.
- Lane produces Bituminous Concrete at lower temperatures (Warm Mix). This uses less fuel and results in fewer emissions than producing conventional hot-mix asphalt.
- Lane uses recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) in some areas to reduce the need for virgin aggregate and liquid asphalt.
- Whenever possible Lane uses natural gas for fuel, resulting in fewer emissions than using other fossil fuels.
- Our pervious pavements offer environmental benefits such as aiding in the stormwater infiltration process.
