Gravel Road Improvement

Work continues 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 vehicles 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.

As of this report, the county has completed hauling the first year's contract of gravel with 184,000 tons of gravel applied to 270 miles of county roads.    Gravel being hauled now is the first round for each road and represents about 50-60% of the new material which will be hauled to each road within the program.     Hauling will continue to roads throughout the summer.

The map below shows the roads that have received the first application of additional gravel:
