2017 Eastern Region Chip Seal - Complete September 2017

Chip sealing preserves the integrity and life of deteriorating roadway by applying a Bituminous Surface Treatment (BST) seal coat of oil and gravel (chips) to the existing pavement. Restoration is necessary before the underlying road structure is damaged, requiring a much more expensive rebuild.

The following sections were chip-sealed:

  • SR 21/US 2 to Keller Ferry
  • SR 28/Lamona to Harrington
  • SR 28/Harrington to Davenport
  • SR 31/Tiger to Metaline Falls
  • SR 174/Grant County Line to SR 21
  • SR 260/Kahlotus to Washtucna
  • SR 271/Oakesdale to US 195
  • SR 272/Colfax to Idaho
  • SR 291/Suncrest to SR 231
