County limestoneCommunities in northern Macomb County will have the chance to benefit from the Macomb County Department of Roads' 90/10 limestone program, which distributes a six-inch limestone application on approximately 18 miles of gravel roads in 2013.
In 2012, Bruce, Armada, Richmond, Washington, Ray and Lenox townships benefited from the county's limestone program, receiving three miles each of limestone applied to selected roads submitted to the county by township officials. According to county officials, the same communities are being offered the opportunity to participate this year.
The cost for the limestone application will be covered mostly by the county. Townships will pay 10 percent of the cost of the limestone, or $6,400 per mile.
"I am pleased that communities in my district can benefit from such a great opportunity at a nominal cost again this year," said Macomb County Commissioner Don Brown, who represents the residents in the affected communities. "Limestone is invaluable in maintaining the quality of our gravel roads here in the north end of Macomb County."
Residents can contact their township offices directly to request that specific roads be considered for this program, or find out when selected roads will be brought to the township board for approval. Limestone application is expected to begin in mid-to-late June.
