Chip Seal 2019

chip seal

City of Columbia Public Works Street Division crews chip sealed 41 streets in 2019. 

Chip sealing uses the same ingredients as asphalt. A thin film of heated asphalt liquid is sprayed on the road surface, followed by the placement of small “chips” or stones. Rollers then go over the chips to compact and adhere them to the existing asphalt. The excess stone is swept from the surface after a period of time to allow the chips to dry and settle. 

The chip seal process typically costs $1-$2 per square yard. By comparison, mill and overlay costs between $7 and $10 per square yard. This means that a typical 1,000-foot residential street would cost $5,000 to chip seal but more than $25,000 to mill and overlay. If pavement maintenance were ignored altogether, total reconstruction of the street could cost more than $200,000. Chip seal prevents road deterioration by sealing up cracks and providing a pliable long-term wearing surface that can typically last 5-7 years.
