WYDOT officials advise motorists that chip seal season is underway on state roadways. Knife River Corporation is the contractor for the work in southeast Wyoming which will continue into July.

The chip sealing and micro-surfacing work WYDOT does each summer repairs damage, provides a skid-resistant surface, and saves money by preventing water from getting into the pavement through cracks and potholes. This extends the life of the roadway by five to seven years.

Motorists are urged to be alert when driving through the work zones. They should watch for flaggers, pilot cars, and slow down to the posted speed limits. They should increase the distance between the cars that they’re following to minimize the possibility of damage caused by loose gravel.
