2016 Chip Seal Road Work Continues

On Monday, July 18th, City contractors plan to chip seal various streets in Salina. The schedule is as follows:


July 18

3rd Street – Pacific Avenue to Euclid Avenue

Bailey Court

Jumper Road

Kneubuhl Court

Rogers Court

Sutherland Court

Wall Street

The work will include applying the asphalt surface treatment and placing temporary pavement markings.

The contractor will begin setting traffic control at 7 am. Temporary traffic control and flaggers will be present to direct vehicles through the work zones and maintain traffic flow; traffic will be reduced to single lanes in both directions during paving. Residences and businesses will be notified if access to driveways will be restricted while work is performed. On-street parking in work zones will be prohibited. Any vehicles or equipment left on the street the day work is scheduled may be towed at the owners expense.

Chip sealing is a method of pavement surface treatment which prolongs the serviceability of streets by sealing the surface. Combined with joint and crack sealing, this surface treatment program extends the service life of pavement.
