For these people, there is a museum . . . the “World Famous” Asphalt Museum in Sonoma, California. On display is asphalt from notable highways including the original Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1).
There also is asphalt from Australia and Italy. It also houses the Asphalt Art Gallery with gorgeous photographs of asphalt.
