Chip and seal is a process of placing a coating of road oil on the existing city street followed by a layer of fine crushed rock or “chips.” A roller is then run over the chips to embed some of them into the asphalt and hold the road oil in place.

The layer of crushed chips including some loose chips remain on the street to prevent “bleeding” through of the oil to other surfaces, such as vehicles. The remaining loose chips are later swept up, routinely within seven days dependent on weather conditions and equipment availability.

The City apologized for any inconvenience as they work to improve the streets in Sedalia. The work contained in this announcement is weather and equipment dependent, so changes may occur from time to time.

For questions about streets or to report a pothole or other roadway problems, please contact the Public Works Department at (660) 827-3000 ext. 1166.
