FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

*** 2021 SUMMER ROAD IMPROVEMENT UPDATE ***

Douglas County Public Works to Begin Chip Seal Program

 

(Douglas County, Ore.) – Douglas County Public Works Department (DCPW), Operations and Maintenance Division plans to begin work on their annual chip seal program on roadways in Douglas County beginning next week.  The work is scheduled to continue throughout the summer.  Chip seal work is typically performed Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, depending upon weather and material availability. Traffic in the work areas will be controlled by flaggers during active work hours.

 

The chip seal program is the application of a special protective wearing surface to an existing pavement.  The surface treatment combines one or more layer(s) of asphalt with one or more layer(s) of fine aggregate.  DCPW will provide updates to the chip seal maintenance schedule, if and when any changes occur.
