Why are you blading my road when it is so dry?

By blading the road, you are knocking down the high spots and filling in the holes. This makes a smoother road and keeps the holes from getting bigger. We try to minimize the amount of blading that we perform when as much as practical, subject to complaints and road condition. Franklin County does not have the resources available to provide a water truck prior to blading.
