The City is encouraging motorists to find alternate routes on the day work is scheduled for a specific street, or to plan for additional time to arrive at their destinations, as periodic lane closures will occur.

Chip and seal places a coating of road oil on the existing city street followed by a layer
of fine crushed rock or “chips”. The layer of crushed chips including some loose chips
remain on the street to prevent “bleeding” through of the road oil to other surfaces, such as vehicles. The remaining loose chips are later swept up, within 7 to 10 days, which is dependent on weather conditions and equipment availability, according to the press release.
