Motor graders will smooth gravel roads throughout the county. Motorists should watch for the slow-moving graders when traveling on gravel county and First Assessment District roads.
Contracted gravel dust control is scheduled to begin Thursday on gravel roads in the southern end of the county and work their way north over the next few weeks.
Road weight limit restrictions are in effect until Tuesday for county roads 105, 106 and 141; Second Assessment District roads and County Highway 36, east of Highway 6, due to subsoil saturation and frost boils.
