Kitsap County Public Works

Kitsap County Public Works strives to be a recognized leader in the delivery of Public Works services. It is our mission to plan, maintain, operate and construct public works facilities for the citizens of Kitsap County in a courteous, cost effective and professional manner.

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 weeks following application. This allows the underlying oil to completely cure before redundant aggregate is swept up.

Sweeping typically occurs 2-3 days following application, and again within 2 weeks, as necessary. It is County practice to reopen roadways immediately following application to lessen inconvenience to the travelling public. General traffic flow also enhances the performance of the application through additional kneading of aggregate into the underlying oil.

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 than 30 MPH are typically signed for reduced travel speeds (<25 MPH), no passing, loose gravel and motorcycles use caution. Motorists should 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 here to read more about our chip sealing program.
