Maintenance work on WIS 144 in Washington County
One-day operation will chip seal roadway

 

June 15, 2017

On Tuesday, June 20, maintenance crews from the Washington County Highway Department plan to chip seal WIS 144 from Skyline Drive (West Bend) to the Washington/Sheboygan County Line. The work is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

During chip sealing operations, the road will be open to traffic. The work will be completed using lane closures with flagging operations. Motorists can expect some travel delays.

Chip seals consist of a layer of crushed stone placed on top of an application of liquid asphalt to reduce further deterioration of the pavement. Loose stones will be on the highway temporarily during the initial cure of the asphalt. Once the chip seal has cured, crews will sweep the highway to clear away loose stones.

Motorists are urged to take extra caution, drive slowly, and allow additional space between vehicles to prevent damage from any loose stone chips.
