Maintenance crews from the Adams County Highway Department plan to chip seal a section of WIS 13 beginning June 8, 2020.
During chip sealing operations, the road will be closed to through traffic between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Access will be maintained to local homes and businesses. Schedules are dependent on weather conditions and subject to change. Starting on or after Monday, June 8, crews plan to close and chip seal WIS 13 from County J to WIS 21. Chip sealing both directions is expected to take about one day. During the closure, state highway traffic will be detoured using County J, County N, WIS 21, and back to WIS 13. Detour route is reverse for southbound traffic.
A chip seal consists of a layer of crushed stone placed on top of an application of liquid asphalt to reduce further deterioration of the pavement.
Loose stones will be on the highway temporarily during the initial cure of the asphalt. Once the chip seal has cured, crews will sweep the highway to clear away loose stones.
Motorists are urged to take extra caution, drive slowly, and allow additional space between vehicles to prevent damage from any loose stone chips.
