Preservation Project Begins on McLeod Co Roads


A pavement preservation project began today (Monday) on approximately 30 miles of McLeod County roads.

The project is a combination of seal coating and fog sealing. Officials say the project should take around 5 days.

Asphalt Preservation Company of Detroit Lakes, MN was awarded this year’s seal coat project, which has a value of about $600,000.

The roads will remain open. Flaggers will be present to help guide traffic; which should expect minor delays.

Seal coating is a preventative maintenance activity that involves applying liquid emulsified asphalt to a blacktop surfaced road and covering with aggregate.

This process extends the life of the roadway and helps hold off costly reconstruction. Fog sealing involves spraying the road with a thin layer of liquid emulsion (oil).
