Pavement preservation to begin on Indiana 46

CLAY COUNTY — The Indiana Department of Transportation announces maintenance crews will begin a pavement preservation project in Clay and Owen Counties on Indiana 46 on or after Tuesday weather permitting. Indiana 46 will be chip and sealed from Indiana 59 to Indiana 246.

Traffic will be controlled by arrow boards and flagmen in the work area. Work on the roadway is scheduled to last through Monday. The schedule is subject to change in the event of inclement weather.

The chip-seal process consists of distributing a liquid asphalt emulsion on the roadway and covering the liquid asphalt with crushed stone to provide a new wearing surface. Chip-sealing extends the life of a roadway by protecting it from moisture, ultraviolet degradation and any other exposures that could damage it. Crews then sweep off the excess stone and follow up with a fog sealing process. The fog seal is applied on top of the chip-seal work and is a light application of asphalt material that can lock in loose stone and help with dust control.

Drivers should exercise extreme caution during the construction of these projects. Loose stone will be present on the roadway during the initial cure of the asphalt, and can damage windshields and paint on vehicles following each other too closely. It is recommended when travelling on a recently chip-sealed road to slow down and allow additional space between vehicles.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone. For the latest news and information about INDOT visit www.in.gov/indot. Find traffic restriction information at www.trafficwise.IN.gov.  Contact the Crawfordsville District at 888-WCINDOT.
