Chip Seal Preservation begins on State Road 42 and State Road 39 next Week

HENDRICKS AND MORGAN COUNTIES – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a chip seal preservation project is scheduled to begin on State Road 42 Monday, June 22, weather permitting. Work is scheduled to begin on S.R. 42 from Monrovia to S.R. 67.  Then crews will move to S.R. 39 from Belleville to just south of Danville, excluding the town limits of Clayton. Work is scheduled to last through Thursday, June 25.

Drivers can expect lane restrictions and traffic directed by flagging operations 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.
