Idaho Dust Control for Roads
Idaho dust control and road stabilization are necessary for the health and safety of rural residents, large and small communities. With over 23,000 miles of roads unpaved and Idaho’s winds, dust control can be an issue. The cost of road improvements must be weighed against the cost of accidents and damage to vehicles due to road disrepair. Shrinking state budgets and reduced federal funds make it necessary to evaluate the options to make the roads last with the least maintenance. That’s where Idaho dust control, road and soil stabilization treatments come in – just blading and watering doesn’t hold up in the long run.

The high traffic, unpaved roads in Idaho need to be stabilized for the safety of residents and visitors alike. Safety when traveling is a primary concern for residents, school buses and tourists – and those that maintain the roads. Travel hazards like potholes and wash boarding need to be regularly addressed to reduce the costs of upkeep and make roads more safe. To maintain safe rural transportation conditions, dirt roads and parking lots should be regularly maintained and treated to stabilize the soil and prevent fugitive dust. High traffic streets and roads where the majority of residents travel on are the primary focus. Some of these include:
- bus routes
- parking lots
- main thoroughfares
- campsite access roads
