Trumbull County, Ohio was successfully preserving its road network, primarily with Chip Seals. However, public perception was that the roads needed to be black to be good. Without the necessary funding for a large hot mix overlay program, county managers decided to implement a fog seal program. Six months after applying the chip seal, they fog sealed the recently treated roads. The roads got a extra measure of preservation from oxidation, got an extra measure of stone retention properties and they looked aestetically pleasing to the taxpayers.
