[INDOT] S.R. 11 Chip Seal In Bartholomew CO Next Week
Start Date: 6/13/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 6/14/2013End Time: 5:55 PM
Entry Description

COLUMBUS, Ind.—Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance personnel from the Columbus Subdistrict are scheduled to chip seal State Road 11 south of Columbus next week.  Flaggers will direct motorists around moving worksites.

 

Beginning Tuesday morning—weather permitting—INDOT crews will chip seal 16.2 lane miles of S.R. 11 from the I-65 off-ramp at mile marker 55.0 (Cypress Lake) north to C.R. 450 South (Southern Crossing).  This surface treatment operation should continue through Tuesday.

 

First, liquid asphalt will be applied to the roadway.  Then, small chips of limestone aggregate will be placed on top.  This seals the pavement against moisture and ultraviolet rays, extending service life—and it restores surface friction, improving skid resistance.  

 

On Wednesday, crews will retrace the S.R. 11 route—applying fog seal.  Fog seal further seals the roadway from moisture and secures loose aggregate while dampening dust.

 

This kind of pavement preservation procedure is extremely cost-effective.  Studies show that every $1 spent on chip seal applications saves $10 in road repairs.

 

INDOT strongly advises motorists to drive with caution on roads where chip seal is being applied.  Tires can kick up freshly sprayed asphalt and loose stone which might cause damage to vehicles.
