Chip Seal Work on County Roads to Begin Soon

Mason County Public Works is notifying motorists that their annual restriping and resurfacing or “chip seal” of many county roadways will be in progress during the months of July and August (weather permitting).

Most of our County roads are restriped every year to improve night-time reflectance.

This year’s chip seal program will begin on June 26th and finish by the end of July, weather permitting. The 2017 chip seal program will cover approximately 38 miles of roads throughout Mason County. Some of the areas impacted include Union, Rustlewood, Mason Lake, Lake Limerick, Matlock, Tahuya, Bear Creek Dewatto, Grapeview, and Kamilche – see the maps below.

Preparatory work is currently underway and will finish by the end of June, when chip seal begins. Brooming of the roadway continues throughout chip seal and striping operations.Motorists are advised to expect delays, use caution while driving through the work area and not drive across painted lines.

The County Sheriff’s Department will be providing added traffic safety during chip seal and restriping.

The County appreciates motorist taking extra care while this road work is in progress. For a complete list of county roads being chip sealed or restriped please visit the County Web site at www.co.mason.wa.us, under “What’s New”, or call the Public Works Department at (360) 427-9670, Ext. 450.
