Des Moines Airport Testing Heated Pavement
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Des Moines International Airport is testing out heated pavement to help clean up areas covered in ice or snow. A 15x13.5 foot slab of concrete was installed in November of 2016 with an electrically-conductive system installed. The heat prevents snow and ice from accumulating, and the designers claim it will work in any temperature. The system can be controlled with a mobile device.
