When you work on a road, why is it so dusty for so long?
We get a lot of calls about this. If the road has failed areas in it, we will probably grind up the failed areas (called "reclaiming") which takes that portion of the road back to a stage similar to new construction. If the road is in really bad shape, we may reclaim the entire roadway. In either case, the white dirt is the road base which must be packed solidly to keep the road from coming apart later. Even after we wet and roll it, it's good to let it set for awhile to let everyday traffic pack it even more, before we put the final oil and rock surface on the top. Even t hough it seems like we have forgotten about it, please understand that we have not, and will be back later to finish it. We ask for your patience!
