Dahlgren Township contracts third party companies to grade, gravel and maintain road surfaces. Road water drainage is enhanced with regular ditch and culvert repair designed to prevent rain from accumulating on the road surfaces. Vegetation is also regularly removed from the road shoulders. If you have questions regarding the condition of any roads or if there is debris in the road, contact one of the township supervisors.†† †
2021 Dust Control Policy
In an effort to simplify the payment process, the Dahlgren Town Board adopted a Dust Control Application Policy effective March 9, 2020. The new policy is as follows:
This year, 2021, the residentís cost for chloride is $.72 per foot and the Township will pay the difference. To participate, yards must be staked and payment received no later than May 15, 2021. Click here to download the Dust Control form.
Dust control applications treat the gravel roads with a solution that retains water to keep the dust in place and stabilize the road material.
Please note the township is not responsible for the effects of rain and every effort is made to schedule application when the weather is favorable. The township will do light maintenance and blading as needed during the summer and fall to fill any potholes that develop in the treated areas.
If you have any questions, please call contact one of the Township Supervisors.
The Township's goal is to have all Township roads passable within a reasonable time after snowfall stops. Township road users are reminded to exercise caution and drive with care. It may not be possible or advisable to drive the posted speed limit at all times.
Dahlgren Township would like to remind everyone, including commercial snow operators that it is against the law to deposit snow in any fashion onto or across a public roadway. Minnesota Statute 160.2715 prohibits the plowing, blowing, shoveling or otherwise placing of snow from sidewalks, driveways and parking lots onto or across public roads.
The placement of snow on the roadway can cause unsafe conditions which contribute to motor vehicle or pedestrian accidents. It can also damage snow plowing equipment
NOTE: Any complaints or comments regarding the maintenance of Dahlgren Township roads should be directed to the Township Board Supervisors and NOT to the operators of maintenance equipment. Supervisors will take care of any corrective actions that are deemed necessary.
