There's bad news for MoCo County roads
A recent study from Montgomery County found one-third of the county's residential roads are in poor or very poor condition.
Montgomery County road projects are costing about 50 percent more than initially budgeted and taking almost three years longer than planned to complete.
Still, the county would like to switch from the present method of
filling potholes, then pouring gravel on top of repairs and then sealing it with a thin layer of asphalt.
which leaves an undesirable surface, to a new method of
dumping a thicker layer of asphalt over the entire road. Problem is, it costs five times as much and given the expense, roads may not be repaired as often. Officials say, however, if the new method is used, roads will not need as much resurfacing.
