Electrified Concrete - The Future of Road, Bridge Infrastructure?

Researchers have developed forms of conductive concrete for several applications such as deicing and heating, and tweaking the mix to include a conductive aggregate creates a form of electrified concrete, according to this article. "Anything is possible if you can create enough power. There are so many energy options available... down the road, heating up an entire highway is in the realm of the possible," says Rick Zaporzan of the National Research Council of Canada.
