Road crew fixes problem on CR 335

BRONSON - They build, repair and maintain roads in Levy County.

A team of 67 men and women make up the Levy County Road Department, and they make sure the highways and byways allow people to traverse them.

Watching work at one site for a couple of hours on March 5 provided an opportunity to see one aspect of the work they do -- repairs.

A pocket of clay under Levy County Road 335 near the intersection of CR 241 had created a big dip in the road. Road Department Administrator Bruce Greenlee experienced the problem himself, he said, and he put it on the list of roads needing repair.

In this instance, a road maintenance crew dug up a section of the asphalt, removed the clay, put down Tensar mesh, replaced the clay spot with "good dirt," compacted that section of road with a roller and added about eight inches of limestone. Tensar is a thin, flat, plastic mesh that helps distribute weight equally across an area below the ground.

Then they let the area settle for a few days. After making sure the section of road was level and sturdy, the team covered it with new asphalt.
