County highway department repairing gravel roads damaged by the weather

Boone County — Nearly 5,900 tons of gravel, stone and other materials have been used so far to temporarily patch Boone County’s 335 miles of gravel roads, with more to come.

The annual freeze-thaw cycle that damages roads through expansion and contraction is still under way, County Highway Superintendent Rick Carney said.

“We’re doing the best we can with what we’ve got,” Carney said.

This year’s cycle is worse than last year’s he said, with high temperatures fluctuating from the 50s to the 20s. “It’s been hard on us,” Carney said.
