Chip Seal Information for 2017

Asphalt deteriorates over time because of the sun and weather. A chip seal helps seal the surface and protect the road. Some preparation work will take place throughout the spring, and the chip seal applications traditionally begin the first week in June.

During the 2017 chip seal season, ACHD will resurface over 550 miles of roadway. Preparing the roadway for chip seal begins in early spring, as weather allows. The 2017 season will begin on June 7 and last until late August or early September.


2017 Chip Seal Schedule And Updates

The chip sealing process consists of four phases:

  • sweeping prior to chip seal
  • applying the chip seal
  • sweeping excess chips
  • applying the fog coat
On-street parking will be affected during each phase. We appreciate your patience during this time as we maintain your roadways and strive to keep our asphalt rating as "the best in the Northwest".
