Chaffee County Road & Bridge Dust Mitigation Begins June 14th

The Chaffee County Road & Bridge Department will be applying DuraBlend on multiple county roads for dust mitigation.

The application will occur Monday, June 14, through Thursday, June 17. DuraBlend® is a liquid mix of water, magnesium chloride, and a plant-based polymer that is sprayed on roads to control dust on unpaved surfaces, also helping protect the road base and reducing potholes and washboarding.

The expected DuraBlend® application schedule is:

  • Monday, June 14: CR361, CR365, CR371, CR390
  • Tuesday, June 15: CR300, CR301, CR301a, CR303, CR304
  • Wednesday, June 16: CR155, CR162, CR193, CR194, and the landfill
  • Thursday, June 17: CR175, CR200, CR220, Pahlone Pkwy/CR128

Drivers are advised to avoid the roads on the day of spraying, if possible, as the DuraBlend® application will create muddy conditions on the road surface for up to 24-48 hours following application. It generally takes at least 24 hours for the DuraBlend® product to bind the road aggregate and to dry, depending on conditions. 

For questions or concerns, contact the County Road & Bridge Department at 719-539-6961.
