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
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.
