The City of Newport will be conducting its annual dust control program starting Tuesday, June 22nd through Thursday, June 24th, provided the weather remains dry.
Nutrien Ag Solutions will apply ammonium lignosulfonate to approximately ten miles of gravel roads within City limits. This is a non-hazardous and non-toxic wood-based product that the City has used in previous years for dust control.
Although vehicle travel can occur almost immediately, drivers should use caution and slow down when traveling on the freshly applied roads. Any excess product that adheres to vehicles or other surfaces can be removed with plain water – do not use soap or other additives.
