Magnesium Chloride Application

Magnesium chloride controls dust and stabilizes aggregate by acting as a binding agent to provide safer roads and driving conditions, fewer potholes, improved durability, and cleaner air. 

Before the county sprays roads with magnesium chloride, we inspect the roads for permeability, smoothness, and proper drainage shaping. If these conditions do not exist, then they must be rectified. The recommended application rate of magnesium chloride is 0.5 gallons per square yard, applied over two applications. This usually provides control and stabilization for two to six months depending on weather and condition of the road base.
