The Sheridan County Public Works Department will continue dust suppressant applications next week.
The roads scheduled to receive the magnesium chloride and calcium chloride treatments, are Wild Horse, Echeta, Box Elder, Murphy Gulch, Upper Prairie Dog, Bird Farm, both Upper and Lower Powder River, and Thompson, Coal and Meade creeks. According to the schedule, the road crews will be working each day from 6-5. The schedule is subject to change due to the weather.
Public works director Rod Liesinger asks travelers to please use caution when driving on the roads and to use alternate routes whenever possible because there may be delays during the application process and the chlorides can be corrosive. We talked with the public works director on Thursday. We'll have his full report later today.
