S.R. 62 Chip Seal At Corydon
Start Date: 9/19/2013Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 9/20/2013End Time: 2:55 PM
Entry Description

CORYDON, Ind.—Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews have been scheduled to chip seal 13 miles of State Road 62 from the east edge of Corydon to the highway’s 4-lane section at Edwardsville (Interstate 64/Exit 118).   Operations should begin Tuesday morning (SEPT. 24), weather permitting.

 

Flaggers will be present to direct motorists around moving worksites.

 

Chip sealing the 26 lane miles of S.R. 62 should continue through the week.  Once completed, crews from the Falls City Subdistrict will re-run the route topping the roadway with a liquid asphalt fog seal.

 

INDOT strongly advises motorists to drive with caution on roads where chip seal and fog seal has been applied.  Tires can kick up freshly sprayed asphalt and loose stone.

 

These pavement preservation surface treatments seal pavement against moisture and ultraviolet rays, extending service life.  The aggregate chips restore surface friction for improved skid resistance.  

 

Applications are extremely cost-effective.  Studies show that every $1 spent on chip seal applications saves $6 to $14 in maintenance costs and extended service life.
