Some helpful tips:



  • If your roads is scheduled for that day, please have all vehicles and trailers off of the road by 8:00 AM.
  • If you happen to get a bit of the oil on your car, bike, shoe, child, etc... rubbing with a citrus-based cleaner on a cloth will generally remove it.
  • Delays are generally short. However, a road is usually closed for a period of 30 minutes while the oil and rock are being applied, and then cured/set. If it's an emergency and you need to get out of your driveway, please contact one of the ground crew and they will guide you out as quickly and safely as possible. If one of the field crew is not visible or accessible, call our field crew chief at (360) 628-3744.
  • A speed of 25 MPH or less is recommended to lessen gravel spray from several days to weeks following the chipseal. This will save windshields and paint chips. It will also lessen potential traction loss from loose gravel when stopping or turning.
  • There may seem to be some excess gravel at first, but this is intentional. Crews will return in a few weeks to sweep away the excess.
