Chip seal maintenance on WIS 96 between US 45 and WIS 76 in Outagamie County
The Outagamie County Highway Department will be performing a chip seal and fog seal operation for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) on WIS 96 between US 45 and WIS 76. This project is scheduled for Wednesday July 18 through July 20.
The chip seal consists of a layer of crushed stone placed on top of an application of liquid asphalt to reduce roadway deterioration and to prolong the life of the pavement. The fog seal is an additional layer of liquid asphalt used to better hold the stone chips in place.
WIS 96 will be closed within the project limits to through traffic. Local access will be maintained with delays, see note on reverse side.
Detour: Take WIS 96 to WIS 76 to US 10 to US 45 to WIS 96. (see map other side)
- Wednesday July 18: Liquid asphalt and stone chips will be applied.
- Thursday July 19: Crews will water and sweep loose stones from the road surface.
- Friday July 20: Fog seal will be applied. Pavement markings will be painted.
Please be mindful of loose chips and proceed SLOWLY through the project work zone.
Chip seal maintenance will result in loose stones temporarily on the roadbed. Once the chip seal has cured, crews will sweep the highway to clear away loose stones. Motorists are urged to take extra caution, drive slowly, and allow additional space between vehicles to prevent damage from any loose stone chips.
The fog seal application must be fully cured before traffic is allowed on it. Motorists should expect to be temporarily stopped or delayed 30 minutes to an hour, depending on drying conditions, to allow the application to cure. Plan ahead for all personal and business travel.
We have made every effort to contact all property owners affected by this project; however, we may have missed some.
