Weather permitting, the Spalding County Public Works crews will be working in conjunction with a veteran contractor to perform pavement preservation work on Vaughn Road from Highway 92 to New Salem Road and Highfalls Road from South McDonough to Highway 16 on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 27th and 28th. This work will be done during the day and is expected to be complete by the end of each business day.
Due to the nature of this project, parking will not be allowed on the shoulders of the road on Vaughn Road or Highfalls Road between 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 27th, and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 28th.
The preservation technique is called a Reclamite® Rejuvenator and is designed to delay deterioration of recently paved roadways by protecting the asphalt from damage due to exposure to the elements. The product to be used on both Vaughn and Highfalls Roads contains an air quality component, titanium dioxide, that improves the air by facilitating the oxidation of airborne emissions produced by vehicle exhaust.
After the work is complete, “Pavement Preservation Project” signs will be placed on the roadways at the beginning and the end of the projects. Spalding County will be testing a number of road rejuvenating products over the next few years to assist in increasing the durability of our road surfaces and to determine sustainability for future cost savings.
