PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — A young entrepreneur says she has developed an environmentally-friendly alternative to pavement, and the City of Prince George is willing to give it a try.

Fourteen year-old Gina Gallant has invented a product called PolyAggreRoad, which is a replacement for traditional pavement made out of recycled plastic.

She has been collecting donations of number two plastic for her project, and Prince George plans to experiment with her invention on a stretch of Gladstone St. that’s slated for repair Oct. 11.

Gallant’s new pavement will be laid in one lane while normal paving will take place in the other, allowing for comparisons as the pavement wears.
