Gravel Road Improvement
posted by Secondary Roads
Work has started on the county's gravel road improvement program. The gravel is paid for with Tax Increment Finance bonds. 750 miles of county roads are targeted for improvement with up to 2000 tons of gravel per mile being added to the roads. Selected roads either had one or more residences per mile, had a feedlot or confined animal feeding operation, had traffic in excess of 50 vehciles per day, and/or were designated farm to market roads. Up to 2000 tons of gravel per mile will be placed on these roads to rebuild the gravel base.
The map below shows the roads that have received the first application of additional gravel:
