Chip Seal

Chip seal – The City of Altoona is piloting a chip seal project in 2016.  Chip seal is not a replacement to asphalt overlays but a maintenance application done on roads between 2-8 years old.  If applied to an appropriate roadway, it will help to extend the life of the pavement by sealing out water helping to extend our paving cycle.  Contract will be awarded to Midland Asphalt Materials, Inc. in the amount of $230,884 from Highway Aid funds.
