County Offers Dust Control Materials, Deadline Soon

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Allen County residents are running out of time to apply for dust control materials for stone and gravel roads. The County's Highway Department reminds the deadline is April 30.

From a county press release:

To sign up for the applications in person at the following locations:
 Highway Department Main Office, 200 East Berry Street, Suite 280, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
 North Maintenance Facility, 2234 Carroll Road, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
 South Maintenance Facility, 8317 Tillman Road, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Residents can pay by check or money order only.
Once again this year, residents are able to choose from two options — applications of either Dustay, which is an asphalt emulsion, or calcium chloride.

The highway department will charge $2.00 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.

The department will schedule with the suppliers to begin placing the dust control materials after May 1, depending on weather and road conditions.

The materials will be applied in two treatments and will span the full width of the road.
