Camden County is changing the way it analyses road integrity.
A company called Infrastructure Management Services will bring new technology to the process.
Camden County Commissioner Don Williams tells KRMS News the scientific evaluation will tell officials if asphalt or chip seal should be used for future repairs on a given road.
Williams says chip seal won’t last as long as asphalt, but it’s less expensive.
He says County engineers recommend 18-20 miles of road repairs each year, but right now the county can only pay for 8-12 miles per year.
