Road & Bridge plans to continue asphalt patching throughout the summer - work has completed on CR45. Our team is currently working on Elbert Road South of the town of Elbert in preparation of chip seal surfacing. Work will be prioritized per the pavement assessment (see 2017 Pavement Condition Survey below).

Roads scheduled for chip seal this summer include: 6 miles S of the town of Elbert to the county line, the remaining 2 miles of CR186 starting from where we left off last year and continuing East to CR17. Chip seal work is project managed through our Road & Bridge department. The county will go out for bid on these projects soon (6/22-6/29).

Did you know...
Chip seal is defined as a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layer(s) of asphalt with one or more layer(s) of fine aggregate. In the United States, chip seals are typically used on rural roads carrying lower traffic volumes.
