Island Roads to receive chip seal repairs and road striping

Island roads will begin receiving chip seal repairs throughout August and into early September.

No paving is part of the chip seal method of repairs. Asphalt and gravel is applied to the surface of streets to smooth out cracks and bumps.

Roads will be reduced to one lane with flaggers while work is completed.

Streets receiving chip seal will be: Blakely Avenue (from Country Club Road to Halls Hill Road); Day Road (from Phelps Road to North Madison Avenue); Fletcher Bay Road (from High School Road to Island Center Road, and from Bucklin Hill Road to Lynwood Center Road); Hilltop Drive (from Parkview Drive to end); Kallgren Road (from Valley Road to end); McDonald Avenue (from Eagle Harbor Drive to Old Mill Road); Phelps Road (from Hidden Cove Road to Euclid Avenue); Pleasant Beach Drive (from Lynwood Center Road to Oddfellows Road).

Driving slower than 10 mph is advised on roads immediately after the chip seal is applied. The roads will be swept after the repairs, but loose gravel may still be present until then. Driveway access may be temporarily disturbed during repairs.

Road striping has been planned in conduction with the chip seal repairs until early October. Center and edge lines will be painted along island roads.

Raised pavement markers will also be installed on over 80 miles of road on Bainbridge.

The city's public works department asks that drivers keep their distance from paint trucks as they apply paint to the roadways
