Allen County Board of Commissioners news release:
Dust Control Applications Deadline is May 8
Applications taken by mail or phone
(April 3, 2020) — Allen County residents who want the Highway Department to apply dust control material to their stone and gravel roads this spring can now mail in their applications. Residents will have until May 8 to sign up.
Applications can be found online at allencounty.us/highway-department. Once the form is completed, print it and mail it back with a check or money order. Applicants can also call any of the Highway Department phone numbers to submit a verbal application. In person applications are suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Payments can be made by check or money order and mailed to: Allen County Highway Department, 200 East Berry Street, Suite 280, Ft Wayne, IN 46802.
Once again this year, residents are able to choose from two options — applications of either Dustay, which is an asphalt emulsion, or calcium chloride. The Highway Department will charge $2.25 per linear foot for the Dustay, while the cost for calcium chloride will be $1.45 per linear foot. Either option requires a minimum 200 foot application.
The department will schedule with the suppliers to begin placing the dust control materials after May 11, depending on weather and road conditions. The materials will be applied in two treatments and will span the full width of the road.
For more information, you can call the Highway Department Main Office at 449-7369; the North Maintenance Facility at 449-4781; or the South Maintenance Facility at 449-4791.
