Fog sealing project may be moved up

Favorable weather conditions may allow the Indiana Department of Transportation to move up its schedule for fog sealing State Road 250 from State Road 3 in Jennings County to east of Interstate 65 in Jackson County to today and Friday.

This would complete pavement preservation operations along the east-west highway’s 20 lane miles, according to a news release from INDOT. A chip seal surface treatment recently was applied.

Fog seal/chip seal applications are cost-effective methods of sealing highways from moisture intrusion and ultraviolet ray degradation while reestablishing friction for safer driving.
