Ain't that the truth!
Then there was spraying oil on roads to keep the dust down too
I remember oil but not salt water. Cheap on the coast but the Eagle River would be a haul.
The state of Maine appears to be still doing this
I witnessed them doing something similar in Northern BC last summer. Any cracks in the road we’re slathered with a heavy layer of tar. The crew would then spread a layer of gravel over the tar and leave. A few days later a sweeping crew would follow up the rear and brush off whatever gravel was left and not “ran in”.
When I was out to the Tides Cove Point lighthouse last summer the first section of the dirt road was oiled down. It was only around where all the houses/cabins were, guessing just to keep the dust down for the residents. Smell reminded me of my old oiled baseball glove I had as a kid
Sounds like what I would call "chip-seal". Great roads for cracked windsheilds and broken headlights.
I remember chip seal, knarly stuff
Can't open it
