If you let a road deteriorate too much, it's not just a case of overlaying the road, it's a case of digging it up and performing a lot of reconstruction.Bill Russel
Supervisor, DeSoto County District Three
To maintain a healthy balance between restoring older roads and maintaining those that are in good condition, the county relies on a combination of techniques: hot mix asphalt overlays for areas with significant levels of distress, and pavement preservation treatements for roads in need of less extensive proactive maintenance. This strategy provides a great amount of flexibility, as it is not 100% dependent on one method to do all of the heavy lifting.
