2013 District road paving schedules announced



 

 

The lists below show roads submitted for paving this year by county commissioners for the four Blount County road districts. While schedules are reasonably stable, specific roads could change according to circumstances not presently known. A road not scheduled could be added, or a scheduled road could be delayed or removed from the schedule, if another road is determined for some reason to be in worse condition. As always, weather and other conditions determine when roads can be worked.

Lists do not include roads to be paved using ATRIP funds. They will be scheduled separately, probably in 2014 and after.

Paving-related work normally begins in mid-spring with the late spring and summer months being prime time for paving, up until the weather begins to cool in October. No paving is done in the cooler and cold months from mid- October until March or April.

Often, roads are prepared for repaving by “reclaiming” or “reprocessing” which involves breaking up the old, deteriorated pavement and plowing the underlying base layer in order to create uniform surface upon which to lay down the new pavement.

Such roads may vary greatly in the length of time that passes before they can Extensively patched roads like this or roads with cracked and broken pavement may need to be ‘reclaimed or ‘reprocessed’ before they can be repaved. be repaved, since they must be allowed to settle and stabilize after reclaiming. The amount and number of occasions of rainfall and the time of year determine how long that process takes, and may in some cases require several months.
