Allen County to begin chip-and-seal conversion on gravel roads
Some Allen County roads will be converted from gravel to chip-and-seal hard surfaces as part of a $2 million investment.
The county hopes to accelerate the conversion of 27 miles of gravel roads this year, a statement from the Allen County commissioners said.
The money for the conversion comes from the county’s Local Income Tax funds.
There are 186 miles of gravel roads remaining in Allen County.
The roads planned for conversion were chosen based on factors such as continuity to another paved road, an existing 20-foot-wide stone pavement as part of the road and a minimum of two houses per mile on the road.
