2015 Maintenance Chip Seals
What is a Chip Seal?
A Chip Seal is a relatively fast and comparatively cost effective road surface treatment that extends the life of pavement. An oil polymer designed to penetrate the existing asphalt surface and replenish the lost oils is sprayed onto the road, which creates a tough binder for the rock chips. A thin layer of chipped rock is then applied immediately behind the oil. The new surface is then rolled to embed the chips in the asphalt. The chip seal application is followed by two to three days of sweeping for excess kick-off of the rock chip as needed, and finally reapplying striping and stenciling.
Drivers, Take Caution!
Please slow for construction zones! After a road has been chip sealed keep a reduced speed of 25 MPH for the first 24 hours, while the oil is curing and fully bonding the rock.
