The Washington State Department of Transportation has a number of highway construction projects underway this season and if you ride a bicycle, their “chip seal” projects may be of particular interest to you since they involve asphalt oil and loose gravel.

This website provides general information on areas to watch out for.

Keep in mind though that chip seal construction schedules are flexible and that the contractor can make day to day changes that are not noted on this weekly roundup. Also, chip seal work involves several phases which are spaced apart by a few days or even several weeks and are handled by different crews.
