[INDOT] S.R. 44 Chip Seal At Connersville NEXT WEEK
Start Date: 8/21/2013Start Time: 7:30 PM

Entry Description

CONNERSVILLE, Ind.—Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews have been scheduled to apply a chip seal surface treatment to14.34 lane miles of State Road 44 between Connersville and Glenwood early next week.  Motorists are advised to drive slowly and with caution around moving worksites.  Plans call for flaggers to be present to direct traffic.  

 

According to INDOT Cambridge City Subdistrict manager Jerome Swim, “We intend to start chip sealing State Road 44 Monday morning at Gray Road west of Connersville and go to the east limits at Glenwood.”

 

Tuesday, the eastbound lane would be chip sealed—reversing the route—from Glendale to Connersville.  Operations could be pushed back by inclement weather.

 

“Chip seals are an excellent way to get good skid resistance,” says Swim.  “That’s especially important during winters on Hillbilly Hill and Bunker Hill.”

 

In addition to skid resistance, chip seal applications seal pavements from moisture intrusion and damage from UV rays. 

 

As a pavement preservation measure, studies show that every $1 invested in chip sealing yields $6 to $14 in savings to the state and its taxpayers through reduced highway maintenance and an increased service life.   

 

A fog seal will be applied at a later date to overcoat the S.R. 44’s chip seal.
