Tahoma Roads In Need of Repair After Resurfacing Failure

IMG_2100

Late last summer El Dorado County crews performed a chip seal project within the roads of Tahoma and Rubicon. Chip seal involves applying oil on the existing road surface, followed by chips/aggregate that are then compacted together by rollers. At first the county expected the project to be a success until this winter… Once the snow removal equipment made it onto the roads it started to pull up the chips and expose the oil.  The loose material is visible on the roadways, driveway and snowbanks. This has been a problem for many area residence and their animals from tracking oil and chips into driveways and homes to their animals getting it stuck on their paws and trying to remove it. Click here to read the full story on the SierraSun.com
