Why doesn't the county rebuild the roads with hot mix asphalt instead of sprayed on oil and spread rock?
This is a question that we hear a lot. While it would be nice to have our roads resurfaced with hot mix asphalt, the fact is that it boils down to the county budget. Based on material costs during the summer of 2009, the approximate cost to resurface a 20' wide county road with oil and rock is approximately $19,014.00 per mile. The same mile of roadway resurfaced with hot mix laydown would cost taxpayers approximately $92,016. Considering that Precinct #3 has approximately 271 miles of county road to be maintained, and that our yearly Road Repair Materials budget is only $500,000.00, it's easy to see why we must use the oil and rock instead of the hot asphalt.
