Pretty dope right? Well it looks like these are finally gonna be put to use! The Missouri Department of Transportation project Road To Tomorrow look like they’re gonna be using the panels to transform an undetermined section of Route 66, the famous and historic route that runs from one side of the country to the other, into a solar energy generating smart road!
Tom Blair, head of the Roadways To Tomorrow project, said “It gets Missouri and MDOT prepared for 21st century innovations,” says Tom Blair, who heads the Road to Tomorrow initiative. “We expect them to be in place, I’m hoping, by the end of this year, maybe before snow flies.”
We’re definitely excited for seeing this kind of road in the future. Fingers crossed more people will get involved with the project.
