[ARCHIVED] Multiple roads scheduled for chip sealing

Chip Sealing_City of Idaho Falls

Next week, HK Contractors will begin chip sealing and fog coating several roads in Idaho Falls. The anticipated time to completion is 30 days, barring unforeseen conditions.

Chip sealing provides a protective covering for streets. Without proper maintenance streets begin to decay from the effects of the sun, weather, and traffic, becoming brittle and cracked. The process provides a renewed surface, extending the life of the road an average of six years and at one tenth the cost of an overlay. To learn more about the chip sealing process, see the video linked below.
