The Street Division is responsible for maintaining safe and reliable street surfaces throughout Puyallup. Chip seal is an asphalt surface treatment that helps waterproof the pavement, provide a skid-resistant surface, and give new life to dry and weathered asphalt pavement.
Fog seal is a method that is used to lock in chips in a chip seal treatment. This helps to prevent early chip seal rock loss and snow plow damage. It also aides in surface prep for roadway markings, providing a better contrast than chip seal alone.
Help Speed up a Chip Seal Project on Your Street
Remove all vehicles from the street on the scheduled dates.
Avoid watering of plants or washing cars near the street. The street needs to be dry before and after the Chip Seal.
Drive no faster than 10 MPH on the new street surface.
After the Chip Seal, it is important to drive slowly until the sweeping is completed.
