April 18 open house planned for county’s proposed cement stabilization road projects

The above map shows the targeted project areas for cement stabilization projects being planned in McLeod County. An open house explaining the projects has been set for April 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hutchinson Area Transportation Services (HATS) building in Hutchinson.

McLeod County is currently planning construction projects on County Road 54 (Tagus Avenue) from Sunset Circle to County Road 7 and County Road 62 (Nature Avenue and 125th Street).
The projects include blending cement powder and water with portions of the existing gravel surface and subgrade material to create a hardened base layer. Once the base is stabilized with cement, the road will then be covered with a chip seal similar to what is applied on paved asphalt roads. The purpose of the chip seal is to protect the stabilized base from weather and to act as a wear surface.
Individuals interested in learning more about these construction projects are invited to an open house that will be held at the Hutchinson Area Transportation Services (HATS) building, 1400 Adams St. SE, Hutchinson, on Wednesday, April 18, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m..
There will be no formal presentation. County staff and staff from Allstates Pavement Recycling and Stabilization of Rogers, which is the potential contractor, will be present to answer questions and describe the construction process.
