BLOOMINGTON — Bloomington Public Works will begin using chip seal pavement preservation for road maintenance on select streets this week.
The city council approved a contract this month for more than $140,000 with McLean County Asphalt Company, Inc.
The work is scheduled to begin early this week with pavement cleaning and sweeping followed by chip seal operations on Thursday and Friday.
Applying a chip seal is a two-step process that includes applying an asphalt emulsion before applying a layer of small, crushed rocks to an existing pavement surface.
City staff or contractors will distribute notices to affected properties with dates and additional information prior to the start of the work on each street.
