Allen County residents wanting to apply dust control to their stone and gravel roads this Spring are running out of time.
The Allen County Board of Commissioners said residents have until April 28 to sign up for the dust control applications. In order to sign up, residents need to go to the Highway Department Main Office, North Maintenance Facility or South Maintenance Facility weekdays from 7 am to 3 pm.
People can choose from either Dustay, an asphalt emulsion, or calcium chloride. The highway department will charge $2.10 per linear foot for the Dustay, while the cost for calcium chloride will be $1.15 per linear foot. Either option requires a minimum 200 foot application.
Residents can pay by check or money order. The department will schedule with the suppliers to begin placing the dust control materials after May 1, depending on weather and road conditions. The board of commissioners said the materials will be applied in two treatments and will span the full width of the road.
For more information, contact the Highway Department Main Office at 449-7369; the North Maintenance Facility at 449-4781; or the South Maintenance Facility at 449-4791.
