  • A chip seal is about one fourth to one fifth the cost of a conventional asphalt overlay.
  • By extending the time between asphalt overlays, chip seal results in lower costs over the long term.
  • By placing a chip seal sooner than asphalt overlay would be placed, the traveling public benefits from roads maintained in better condition.
  • Chip seals eliminate the need to crack seal.
  • Chip seal enhances safety by providing good skid resistance.
  • Chip seal provides an effective moisture barrier for the underlying pavement against water intrusion by sealing cracks in the pavement.

  • DOT has successfully used chip seal for over 25 years to maintain state routes.
  • Chip seal is used only on low traffic routes, less than 2,500 vehicles per day.
