Chip Seal Information
When chip seal resurfacing is applied to a roadway, loose gravel is
inherent on the roadway surface for a few days, and up to a couple of

It is incumbent on the motorist to use caution when traversing these
work zones to minimize flying rock or loss of vehicle control until
loose aggregate is removed. Roadways with regulated speeds of greater

adhere to sign postings, but in all circumstances, should reduce speeds,
maintain suitable following distances, minimize abrupt braking, and
should refrain from spinning tires. It should also be understood that
traffic fines double within posted work zones. Click
