DOT to do chip seal work on Ind.-105 soon

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that chip seal preservation is scheduled on Ind.-105 in Huntington County.

Work is scheduled for Ind.-105 in Huntington County, between Ind.-9 and the south limits of the Town of Andrews. INDOT maintenance crews are expected to begin on or after Monday, June 12, weather permitting.

Drivers can expect traffic directed by flaggers while INDOT maintenance crews maintain access for vehicles. Motorists are urged to seek an alternate route. If driving through the chip seal work zone, drivers should take extra caution, drive slowly and allow additional space between vehicles to prevent stone chips from damaging windshields or paint.

Once the chip seal has cured, crews will sweep the highway clear of loose stone, apply a fog seal surface coat and paint pavement markings. The entire process can take up to two weeks in each area. All chip seal in Huntington, Miami and Wabash counties is expected to be complete by mid July, weather permitting.
