    Desert sand is more rounded, has less compression strength in concrete, than angular sand. And it cracks more

    Maybe they are using it on the highways? Has anyone noticed some of the new finished highways are falling down ..as if it was built over holes or something? A certain state has it bad , but they seem to have always had big problems finding good road construction company's But this caving in on itself is a new way to self destruct., at least I have not seen it like that before.

    Highways are on a bed of sand, taken out of ground and crushed. Its called roadbase. However sandstone beneath the eoad and its layers erodes with water and shifting will happen. As well sinkholes caves

    Judging by all the whining and anger about everything on TV and the internet, I think that 40% of the earths sand resides in people's #######.
