With each passing car, all gravel roads give off dust. The amount of dust a gravel road can give off varies substantially. In areas that receive more rain and moisture, the issue of dust is lessened. In the arid or semi-arid areas of the southwest and Great Plains, dust control can be more difficult. If traffic on your gravel road is high, dust control is a wise investment in the long run that can save you money. Proper dust control measures reduce material loss, vehicle damage, and the need for blade maintenance while increasing road safety.
