Robert Clark of the Warren County Highway Department sits on the back of a tanker truck spraying a new oil-based paving gel onto Bell Bottom Road off Mississippi Highway 3 Tuesday. A motor grader is used to blend sand with the gel, creating a paved road. Warren County is trying out the new paving method that shows potential for being a less expensive alternative to paving dirt roads. (The Vicksburg Post/PAT SHANNAHAN)
