Chip Sealing Operations


The Webster Highway Department maintains an eight-year cycle for chip sealing maintenance operations on all town roads. The highway industry is constantly working with the latest innovative technologies to enhance oil efficiencies and keep a conscious eye on environmental responsibilities. A chip sealing program is undoubtedly the most cost-effective maintenance operation a municipality can perform.

Post-Application Procedures

Maintenance follow-up to oil and stone application is street sweeping, which commences within two weeks of application. Recommended travel speed after chip sealing application is 15 miles per hour.
