Chip and seal operations to begin on Morgan Rd. and H Dr. S

By |2014-08-14T08:39:41-05:00August 14th, 2014|Construction Notices, News|

The Calhoun County Road Department (CCRD) will be performing chip and seal operations on H Drive South, west of M-66 to the county line, and on Morgan Road, from M-66 to M-37, beginning Monday, August 18th, 2014. The work is estimated to be complete by August 28th, weather permitting.

Chip and seal operations are dependent upon dry weather. Rain showers or even the threat of rain showers will delay operations.

The chip and seal process is a moving operation that consists of applying a thin layer of oil followed by a layer of small stones. This process improves the existing road by sealing cracks to prevent further damage by water, ice, snow, etc. After the process is completed, loose stones may be present for three to five days until a fog seal is applied to seal in any remaining loose stone. Please follow all speed advisory signs. Traveling at speeds in excess of those advisory signs may spray the stones and damage the roadway.

Our crews will be on-site from approximately 6am – 4pm, Monday-Thursday. Please do not park vehicles on the road as any vehicle that is parked on the road during this time will be towed at the owners expense. The roads will be closed and access denied for a short period of time during the chip and seal process as well as the fog seal process.

Thank YOU for your patience as we improve your roadway. If you have any questions regarding these projects, please contact the CCRD office at 269-781-9841, email us at rdinfo@calhouncountymi.gov
