Out of the 3.8 million miles of road in the continental US, it is estimated that over 47 percent are aggregate and earth surfaced roads (Colorado Transportation Information Center. #5, 1989). Depending on which part of the country one is located the percentage of the road networks that is unpaved could vary between 30 and 70 percent. For example, here in Colorado approximately 65 percent of public roads are unpaved. Most of the unpaved roads are classified as low-volume roads and are located in the rural and forest areas of the country. While unpaved roads carry a small portion of the country's traffic, they provide a vital first link in the county's economy.

Controlling dust and environmental impacts

With 69,000 miles of aggregate road in Minnesota, controlling dust produced by traffic is a major concern. Besides increased expense for road maintenance and decreased visibility for drivers, one of the potential effects of dust, or particulate matter, is air pollution. Dust is one of the six primary pollutants monitored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is harmful to human respiratory health and coats crops and homes. But are the negative environmental impacts of dust greater than the effects of pouring dust control chemicals onto aggregate roads?

Cloruros de Sodio, Calcio y Magnesio

Many dust control products are currently available: chlorides (calcium, sodium, and magnesium), soybean soapstock, and bentonite are some of the options. Most research focuses on these products'; performance issues, but minimal research exists about environmental issues. Internet research, however, provided some further information about the latest products in the industry. (Ed. note: Minnesota T2 does not endorse particular products.)

Road Preparation Applying the Product. Optimum Moisture Test Sections All gravel roads will give off dust under traffic. After all, they are unpaved roads that typically serve a low volume of traffic, and dust is usually an inherent problem. The amount of dust that a gravel road produces varies greatly. In areas of the country that receive a high amount of moisture, the problem is greatly reduced. Arid or semi-arid regions such as the desert southwest and much of the great plains region in the USA are prone to long periods of dry weather. Similar regions around the globe can have similar weather patterns. Dust can really bring complaints in these areas if there are residences located near the road and traffic is high. The quality and type of gravel also has some effect on the amount of dust. Some limestone gravels can dust severely while some glacial deposits of gravel with a portion of highly plastic clay can take on a strong binding characteristic that will resist dusting remarkably well. Still, in prolonged dry weather, there will be dust! Whether to provide some type of dust control or not can be a hard decision to make. Virtually all methods of dust control require annual treatment. The cost can be prohibitive if traffic volume is low. On the other hand, if traffic is high, the cost of dust control can more than pay for itself with the benefits of reduced material loss and reduced need for blade maintenance. (28) At this point, many agencies will face pressure to pave the road. It may actually be a good economic decision in the long run, especially if there is good indication that traffic will continue to increase in the future. However, never pave a road before it is ready! There is good information on making this decision in Appendix D.

son los productos posibles ms comnmente usados a travs del pas. Tres categoras: Cloruro del calcio en forma de la escama o lquido, cloruro del magnesio generalmente en forma lquida, y el cloruro de sodio (roadsalt). El cloruro de sodio raramente se utiliza y es el menos eficaz. El cloruro de calcio y de magnesio pueden ser muy eficaces si se utilizan correctamente. Son productos higroscpicos que, en trminos simples, significa que captan la humedad del aire y la mantienen en la superficie del camino. Son razonablemente simples de utilizar. Types of Stabilizers

These are the most commonly used products across the country. They fall into three categories: Calcium Chloride in flake or liquid form, Magnesium Chloride generally in liquid form, and Sodium Chloride (road salt). Sodium is seldom used and is the least effective. Calcium and Magnesium Chloride can be very effective if used properly. They are hygroscopic products which, in simplest terms, means they draw moisture from the air and keep the road surface constantly damp. They are reasonably simple to use.

Reduced "Whip Off" of Aggregate

This is another economic bonus to dust control when it is working well. As mentioned earlier, when dust control products are working well, the fine material in the gravel cannot loosen and dust away. This also means that the stone portion of the gravel will tend to remain embedded in the surface and will not be lost to the edge of the road or even whipped off onto the inslope from heavy traffic. Studies have shown that as much as one ton of aggregate per mile is lost each year for each vehicle that passes over a road daily. This means that a road carrying 200 vehicles per day will experience the loss of 200 tons of aggregate per mile each year. (7) Obviously this will vary with the amount of rainfall received, the quality of the gravel and other factors. Retaining aggregate is a good added benefit to dust control.

Reduced Blade Maintenance

A road surface that remains tightly bound and stable will require much less blade maintenance. The manufacturers of some dust control products highly recommend that the surface should not be bladed at all after their products are applied. While extra blading, shaping and mixing is needed to prepare a road for dust control, the overall need for blade maintenance should be greatly reduced. This can be a great savings in equipment expense and labor. A county highway official once commented: "I dont react to dust complaints. All gravel roads have dust. But I do react to high maintenance costs. When we have to regravel a road frequently and do blade maintenance frequently, then its time to look at stabilizing the surface with Magnesium Chloride. Reduced maintenance is what were after. Dust control is just a bonus!"

Application Tips

The carbide-tipped bits on a cutting edge can be a valuable tool in preparing a road for Chloride treatment. They penetrate the road and give a shallow scarifying effect to loosen and mix the existing gravel. This leaves a nice uniform loose layer of material on the surface.

This road has been prepared well for a liquid Magnesium Chloride treatment. Notice the uniform, loose and nicely crowned surface looking over the hilltop. There is also good shoulder drainage as well. This is an excellent example of road preparation.

Usage of Chloride-Based Dust Suppressants in Canada

Total consumption of chloride-based dust suppressants in Canada is estimated at approximately 103 kt in 2000 (on a 100% basis). The majority of this consumption is calcium chloride, which is used across Canada. Smaller amounts of magnesium chloride are used as a dust suppressant, primarily in western Canada (i.e. 3 U.S. manufacturers of magnesium chloride are located in the western U.S.). Historically, liquid solutions of calcium chloride have generally been used as a dust suppressant. These liquid solutions typically contain 38% calcium chloride. Recently, the flaked form of calcium chloride has seen increased usage for dust control. The flaked form generally contains 78% calcium chloride (the rest moisture). Magnesium chloride is applied as a liquid, which contains approximately 28% magnesium chloride (the rest mostly water). Research conducted for this study did not identify the use of potassium chloride or sodium chloride as dust suppressants in Canada
