 Dusty road problem

I live off of a dirt road that gets dry and dusty any suggestion on a mix to help keep the dust down.

 Dusty road problem

Lots of times you can whine at the town supervisor and they will squirt your section of road with a calcium solution.

You can get bagged calcium and spread it thinly your self.

Thanks Harvey, I have not done the supervisor route yet might give it a try. Did try the calcium stuff on my driveway but where I buy it it is $14 a bag. Not sure what the pallet price is but I cannot afford to do the whole road at that price.

Thanks

I have not tried it yet but water soluble polymer would also have the same effect. They use them as a flocculant in water treatment plants. A little would go a long way.
I am not sure if it would make the road slippery. Might work in to ways if it kept the traffic down.

If it's available in your area, you might want to try spreading shale on the road. It won't completely get rid of the dust problem, but it will cut it down considerably.

Thanks Peters I like the Polymer idea I would enjoy the slip'n & sliding part. Gee I wonder if my insurance would cover me!

Thanks Billy if I can find shale around here it might be more in my price range I will call around and see.

Thanks to you all.

 Dusty road problem

Our Township uses something that leaves roads looking like there were lightly oiled. I'll no doubt run into the guy who puts it down sometime this week and will ask what it is.

I guess I miss those old oiled section roads. They were far better to drive on then gravel even if they did cause cancer and things environmentalists get real excited about.

Tom, they used to use that stuff around our place too. It is called "black Liquor" although why I'm not sure, it is actually a sludge by-product from the lumber mills.

They discovered it contains trace amounts of all sorts of nasty chemicals, most notably, Mercury. The environmentalists successfully argued it was going into the watershed so they discontinued it's use in favour of CaCl (Calcium Chloride).

As a sidebar, our area is part of a pilot program in which they are using liquid CaCl applied by a tanker truck like the ones used to wash roads, but with a finer spray pattern, to control road icing instead of rock salt. They are even saturating the asphalt for 300 ft. leading up o intersections, and along curves, this week hoping it will stay on the road and prevent the ice from sticking to the road surface.

Best of luck.

I have never tried this but along the lines of what Eric said; spraying waste vegetable oil on the road in the area in front of and near your house should have the same effect as spraying it down with diesel oil. The diesel oil sprayed on dirt roads worked well at keeping the dust down when I was in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm. It is however, NOT good for the water table and environment. Waste vegetable oil provided it is applied in reasonable amounts should work the same way. How much road are you planning to treat? Just a thought.

 Dusty road problem

At a place I used to work, the company encouraged people to bring in their used engine oil to help with dust in the parking lot. Poeple gladly obliged. Eventually the lot was paved with asphalt.

Years later, the company was selling the property that had the old parking lot. Current environmental regulations required core drills into the dirt to check for industrial pollution. The drillers struck oil at eight feet. The oil had filtered through the soil and was trapped on top of a clay layer. I also understand that they disturbed the clay layer with the core drill holes and that allowed some of the oil to transfer below the clay layers.

This turned into a very big expensive mess. They brought in a kiln sort of device and strip mined all of the dirt from the old parking lot, down to the clay, and the dirt had to be burned through that kiln to destroy the oil.

This is something to keep in mind if you have old engine oil, chemicals or even paint.
