Dirt Roads

Pilot Project

On Wednesday, May 19th, the Public Works team created pilot sites at three different locations to test two new road base materials being used successfully in other communities with dirt roads.

Your input is valuable and important to us so please use this link to visit the pilot sites and provide your feedback right from your cell phone.  Maps to the various locations shown in the survey.

Take the survey here.

At Forest Street and 3rd Avenue, and Lake Street and 5th  Avenue, we used a road base product called Bank Run Shall that the FDOT recommends.

At Forest Street and 2nd Avenue, we used a newly developed product called paver base. In other places this product is doing wonders for holding up under the Florida weather and for a reduction in dust.

Below you can see some photos of the team hard at work on these pilot projects.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your input – it is critical to our program development.

Sincerely, your Public Works Team
Tonya, Travis, Brian, Caleb, and Rick
