Concerns raised about county’s first attempt at prime-and-seal work

McLeod County’s first try at a prime-and-seal road project may need some fixing up, the County Board heard at its Nov. 4 meeting.
The county used funds generated by its wheelage tax to use the prime-and-seal method to provide a blacktop-like surface on Tagus Avenue, west of Lake Marion.
Pete Maiers, chairman of the Collins Township Board of Supervisors, said residents were disappointed with the results.
Maiers said he rode with the construction crew during the application, and the result was an inconsistent surface with ruts.
