Chip Seal Work Planned on State Road 119 in Pulaski County

State Road 119 in Pulaski County between U.S. 35 and State Road 16 will be closed Tuesday for a chip seal project.

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, the chip sealing process consists of distributing a liquid asphalt emulsion on the roadway and covering the liquid asphalt with crushed stone to provide a new wearing surface. Once the asphalt has cured, any excess chips left on the roadway are swept from the surface.

If the weather is favorable, the project may end sooner than the projected completion date of Sept. 7.

The official detour will utilize state-maintained roads.
