Chip Seal Operations to Begin in Bennett Spring State Park
LACLEDE/DALLAS COUNTY – As part of a larger project to extend the life and driving surface of several roadways around and within one of Missouri’s busiest state parks, the next round of chip seal operations will begin next week in Laclede and Dallas Counties.
A contractor working for the Missouri Department of Transportation is expected to begin chip sealing Route 64A on Monday, July 22. That same day, crews will begin the process on various roadways within Bennett Spring State Park in partnership with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Chip seal operations provide a new driving surface that improves traction, seals cracks, and prevents water from penetrating the roadway. All at one-third the cost of a conventional asphalt overlay.
Delays are possible while these work zones are in place. Flaggers and pilot cars will guide motorists through the work zones. MoDOT says drivers should stay focused on the road, obey all traffic signs and give plenty of room to workers.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of August. The contractor has already completed operations on Routes 64 and 32.
This work is weather permitting and could be delayed.
