Maintenance crews from the Adams County Highway Department plan to fog seal WIS 13 on Monday, June 22.
Starting at 6 a.m., crews plan to close and fog seal WIS 13 from County J to WIS 21. Fog sealing both directions is expected to take one day. During the closure, state highway traffic will use the following detour: northbound WIS 13 to County J, County N, and WIS 21. Southbound WIS 13 traffic is reverse.
During fog sealing operations, the road will be closed to through traffic between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Access will be maintained to local homes and businesses. Schedules are dependent on weather conditions and subject to change.
Fog sealing is a method that is used to lock in chips by placing a light application of a diluted asphalt emulsion over a chip seal. It is commonly done to ensure reduction of stone loss and to add life to the pavement by increasing a pavement’s impermeability to water and air.
