Crews plan to chip seal the pavement

Times Herald Staff

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region office has announced a chip seal operation will take place on state Highways 22 and 32 between the cities of Gillett and Oconto Falls from Monday, June 18, to Wednesday, June 20.

Highway 22 will be closed in the project limits, while Highway 32 will remain open with lane closures and flagging operations. The project covers an area from just south of Gillett Town Hall Road in Gillett to Highland Drive in Oconto Falls

Chip seals consist of a layer of crushed stone placed on top of an application of liquid asphalt to reduce roadway deterioration and prolong the life of the pavement.

State Highway 22 will be closed from the roundabout at Highway 32 to Highland Drive. Access to local properties and businesses will be maintained. Traffic will be detoured to County Road CC and Highway 32 from the roundabout. Highway 32-22 will have lane closures and flagging operations from just south of Gillett Town Hall Road through the curve at WIS 32/WIS 22 and east to the roundabout.

Drivers are asked to be mindful of loose chips and proceed slowly through the project work zone.

Motorists should note that chip seal maintenance may result in loose stones temporarily on the roadbed. 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.

Maintenance operation schedules can change due to weather and maintenance crew manpower. For up-to-date maintenance schedules and locations in northeast Wisconsin, visit the highway maintenance traffic impact website, http://projects.511wi.gov/maintain-ne/
