A Light Surface Treatment (LST), also known as a bituminous surface treatment, is a relatively new method for preserving a gravel or dirt road surface. The Minnesota Local Road Research Board developed a half-day training curriculum on Lightly Surfaced Roads to help counties and townships select the right treatment and successfully apply it. Topics include: Introduction to Lightly Surfaced Roads; advantages and disadvantages of an LSR; treatment options (Otta Seal, Chip Seal, Prime and Seal, etc.); keys to successful application; how to avoid LSR failure; online selection tools.
Current training schedule:
- April 1, 2020—MnDOT Baxter, 7694 Industrial Park Rd S, Baxter, MN 56425
- April 22, 2020—MnDOT Mankato, 2151 Bassett Drive Mankato, MN 56001-6888
