Road Maintenance

Every year Nicollet County applies "overlays" to county roads that are showing signs of wear. Even though the price of a barrel of oil has come down, the price of products that contain substantial amounts of oil stays the same or increases. That is the case with bituminous used to overlay roads. Nicollet County Engineer, Seth Greenwood reports "for a three inch overlay we are looking at around $230,000 per mile. That includes all items to complete the project. Striping, mobilization, bituminous, etc." end
