Gravel streets throughout Newberg will be treated with a dust control product the week of June 11 by a contractor for the city of Newberg's public works department, Envirotech Services. The product is a magnesium chloride mixture that holds moisture from the air on road surfaces to reduce dust on the 1.8 miles of streets where it will be sprayed. The city is asking residents not to park in areas where "No Parking" signs will be posted.
