2022 Dust Control Operations Schedule
Road & Bridge is currently in the middle of the first of seven routes (“Product 1” – orange route); we’ve completed Camp Bird Road, we’re now on CR-14, and we’ll likely make it to CR-17 by the end of the day. We will next move on to “Product 2” – blue route.
Each route will take approximately 1.5-2.0 weeks to complete – as weather and operational requirements will permit.
We are testing seven (7) different products this year – not all contain magnesium chloride – so we’re calling these treatments “dust control” vs “mag chloride.”
We will likely pause dust control treatments for a month (mid-June thru mid-July) while we build-up and chip seal the northernmost 2.0 miles of the unpaved portion of CR-1.
