Asphalt is used as a surface paving material for the roads, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and bike paths that people use every day. It is an especially good material for surface paving because placing a smooth layer of asphalt is possible and even more importantly, it is relatively inexpensive to lay but very durable.
