A Message from Development and Services Committee Chairman Councilman Norman Jackson, District 11- September 22,2008
The Richland County Development and Services Committee will meet Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 5 pm in County Council Chambers
(2020 Hampton St.)
Councilman Norman Jackson, committee chair, will be addressing alternate paving of all Dirt Roads. His proposal could pave 200+
(536 dirt roads) miles of dirt road in 5 years instead of 150 years. The great part is that it would not raise taxes. After a
four year study recommended by Mr. Jackson, the results show that the Road Maintenance Fee and the County Transportation
Committee Funds could fund the program. The roads would have a minimum of 15 years before resurfacing and would cost less to
maintain. The alternative pavement section is designed in accordance with AASHTO and the materials used meet DOT standards.
The roads would look no different from other roads and will last longer than most traditional roads now approved by the County.
Some roads now are resurfaced in less than three years.
