Where Will We Be Chip Sealing The Summer Of 2023?

We know bicyclists really like to get this information - it definitely helps them plan their route to avoid riding on a rougher surface.

Many of you know by now why we chip seal so much - it is a very cost-effective maintenance treatment.  And while there can be some frustrations with the way it looks (and driving slower for a while for safety) the reality is the alternative is unaffordable.

We've provided two listings of our chip seal plans again this year.  The first is simply an alphabetical list of road names around our county which will be sealed.  The second list is back this year - a route list showing how the work will actually progress.   We plan to complete this 'route' list in order from top to bottom, but please note that plans can change sometimes due to various factors.

As you can imagine, our advance planning can be hampered at times by weather and other unforeseen events.  We thank you in advance for your patience.  Work will begin in earnest in early-August around the 14th of the month.  Please note the dates of this work can change depending on weather and other factors.  For those of you who want to see what we are planning to do on a daily basis, check out our Daily Project Listing - we update this each morning with the most current information on all our crew activities which may impact your travel significantly.

Lastly, one of the nice things about chip sealing is the rate at which we move along.  At approx. 300 feet a minute we can be there and gone in short order.  For more information check out the article titled 'Chipseal Maintenance 101' as well as another article titled '9 Steps to a Good Roadway Surface.'
