Chip and seal processAs the County Highway Department completed the chip and sealing in the northwest section of the county earlier this week, they are moving to the north central part of the county.

Chip and sealing will continue on Lilac Road south of 6th Road to Plymouth Goshen Trail.   They will start on Plymouth Goshen Trail at US 30 to King Road. Then 9A road from King to Iris. Move back to King and go from 9A to 3rd.

Highway Superintendent Jason Peters had accolades for his staff including the Chip and Seal Crew, Culvert Crew, Area Leaders, Mechanics, Mowing Crew and Sign Man have continued to make great progress and continue to do a good job. He said, “Learning the new machines and having to do and fill in where needed as needed with all that is going on because we are thirty plus days behind, well done.”

Peters continued, “Mechanics have been jumping back and forth from repairs to keep all machines up and running the best they can. The culvert crew is trying to say ahead of the sealing crew and trying to fit in other repairs as they come in.”

Peters said his mowing crew members are new and still learning the county and being a month behind due to weather in June, the highway department has been pretty busy.

Marshall County Residents have helped also by trying to avoid the construction areas and being patient with the construction crews when coming up on them. Peters said, “Thank you for your corporation!”   he also reminded drivers, “As the chip and sealing continues please try to avoid spinning out on the fresh sealed road.”
