Article describing use of full-depth OMNI rubber crossings to replace asphalt and timber railroad crossings in Helena, Montana. The city was so pleased with the results that it made sure to dedicate funding in future budgets to replace the remaining rough crossing surfaces. Recycled rubber is used to make the crossing, allowing Helena to "practice what it preaches." As of September 1, 1995, the city began diverting all tires from landfills. The tires that the city collects are sent to recyclers to be used for fuel or as a component of road-base material.
