The decision to resurface a road is based on

  • budget,
  • condition of the road,
  • the amount of traffic on the road, and
  • the amount of time since the road was last resurfaced.

The cost of oil and rock, manpower available, and weather conditions have a direct effect on how much resurfacing can be done each year. 

Each type of road surface requires a different maintenance schedule and process.

Feel free to submit a resurfacing request here. A resurfacing request does not guarantee resurfacing will be done, but will bring the road in question to the attention of the highway administrator and field supervisors for further consideration. Each spring, every road in Clay County’s jurisdiction is evaluated to determine which roads will be resurfaced that year.
