Beginning May 9, 2023, the District Road & Bridge Department will be starting road maintenance. Currently our budget allows us to chip seal approximately 40 of our 120 miles of chip seal roads putting them on a 3-year rotation. The last couple of years we’ve started reclaiming roughly 20 miles of the 40 planned chip seal miles. This process consists of using a reclaimer to dig 6”-7” down into the road, bring the material up, grinding it, then laying it back down. We then water and compact it in creating a smooth & solid sub surface, however this is not the final stage. After letting it set for a couple of months for further compaction, we will apply another layer of oil and haydite. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are confident this process will improve the quality of our roads while extending life expectancy.
