Monroe Evening News, April 2, 2011
Industry experts are interested in using part of deteriorated Samaria Rd. for a test that might reveal a long-term solution for the county highway.
Bucky Brooks, a Monroe resident who recently was named president of the Asphalt Emulsion Manufacturers Association and is a sales manager for Asphalt Materials Inc. of Oregon, Ohio, said he plans to offer an idea to the Monroe County Road Commission in the weeks ahead.
“It’ll give you an idea of what could be done to fix the road,” he told The Evening News.
Mr. Brooks said discussions are in the preliminary stage, but the asphalt firm would be willing to conduct the experiment for free. It’s not sure how large a section might be involved, where it would be located or how long the test would last.
