Road Construction Information
Building a road is not easy! It is done in distinct steps.
1. Acquire the proper Right-of-Way (ROW)
In those cases where the road must be widened, the County must acquire Right-of-Way. Failure to get the proper ROW from county citizens might require delay the project significantly.
2. Subgrade Processing
Prepare the subgrade or the foundation of the road. The roadbed must be graded smooth and level and the drainage on either side of the road has to be prepared. Culverts must be installed and/or replaced.
3. Flexbase Processing
Tons of flexbase (a special mixture of rock, gravel and dirt) is dumped on the road and is leveled, smoothed, hardened and made ready for the next step. This is what the asphalt sits upon and it must be made hard and level.
4. Two Course-Penetration Asphalt
The asphalt is applied upon the newly prepared roadbed.
Roads on this list will be upgraded to asphalt ONLY if the county can obtain the required right-of-way easement from the adjoining landowners.
