DUST CONTROL

 

One of the drawbacks of gravel roads is they are prone to giving off dust. Road dust is made up of fine particles that are important to the stability of the road. As a road dries out, the particles blow away, breaking down the road. Daily traffic scatters the remaining coarser aggregates that have become loose, causing holes, ruts, washboard, loss of profile, loss of ditch lines and other problems. Keeping the road moist helps the particles to adhere to each other and to aggregates, allowing for optimum compaction. Calcium chloride and mineral well brine are both applied to gravel roads. When applied, they draw moisture from the air and ground which binds the materials in the road, reducing the amount of dust that becomes airborne and providing a better driving surface. The gravel roads are graded before applying the dust control material. Missaukee County Road Commission applies material to gravel roads twice per year - once before July 4 and again in September.
