Clinton County Roadway Sealing

Various County Roads (Thursday, August 14, 2014) - A roadway sealing project ("chip and seal") is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 18th, weather permitting. Over 62 miles of county and township roads throughout the Clinton County will be sealed. Lane closures and delays may be encountered but traffic will be maintained during this project, with no anticipated road closures.

We use the "chip and seal" surface on many County roads as a cost effective method of preserving the pavement. During our annual inspections we identify these roads as having deteriorated pavements and in danger of developing pot holes and permanent damage if not sealed this year. Chip and seal was chosen as the preferred treatment as it is about 25% of the cost of new asphalt.

Usually the loose stone will work itself off in a few weeks leaving a surface which is as stable as regular asphalt. In the meantime, we post "LOOSE STONE" signs to alert travelers that the surface may feel slick in places. The edge lines and center lines will be replaced once the loose stone has worked itself off.

The roughness of the new surface is usually considered a benefit in the winter as it supplies additional traction during snowy and icy weather.
