SPRINGDALE, UT – The Final phase of the Kolob Terrace Road maintenance project to help preserve the asphalt, will begin on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. Traffic control crews, (flaggers) will be used during this project to stop traffic for up to 25 minutes intervals during the day. Tony Ballard, Park Road and Trails Foreman explains that “chip seal is a process where rock chips are layered on top of hot oil over the existing surface, in order to help preserve the life of the road. It is a process we try to do every 7 to 8 years.”
Please be advised to slow down through the project area, and be aware of the maintenance crews on the roadways. The chip seal project should be completed by the following Tuesday, August 1, 2017.
