Safer Roads with Montana Dust Control
In Montana, dust control and road stabilization are necessary for the health and safety of rural residents, large and small communities. With nearly 76,000 miles of roads across the state, approximately 54,000 miles of those roads are unpaved. State, county, and city road departments must balance the cost of maintenance with the cost of accidents. Shrinking budgets and diminished federal funds make it necessary to evaluate the best methods for making the roads last with less maintenance. That’s where Montana dust control and soil stabilization treatments come in.

With the majority of roads in Montana unpaved, high traffic ones need to be stabilized for the safety of residents and travelers alike. Travel safety for residents, school buses, and visitors is a primary concern. To ensure their safety, dirt roads and parking lots should be regularly maintained and treated to stabilize the soil and prevent blowing dust. This is especially important for the high traffic streets and roads like:
- bus routes
- parking lots
- main thoroughfares
- campsite access roads
Ensuring that travel hazards like potholes and wash boarding are addressed will reduce the costs of upkeep and make roads safer.
