[ARCHIVED] St. Joseph County Road Work from July 15 - July 24 , 2019


The following schedule is subject to change due to weather delays.

St. Joseph County will be performing Road Striping work on the following roads, during the hours of 6 am to 4:30 pm. Please be advised it takes approximately three minutes for the paint to dry, to help prevent drivers from driving through the wet paint our crews provide advance warning signs stating "Paint Crew Ahead", two shadow vehicles marked with flashing lights and signs stating "Wet Paint Do Not Pass", and cones on the beginning and end of the freshly repainted lines.  

When Drivers see Paint Crew Ahead signs, they should expect delays, and drive slowly and cautiously. Road striping paint requires a minimum of three minutes to adequately dry. Drivers should not drive through or in between the equipment train and maintenance vehicles and should avoid driving around them as a precaution.

St. Joseph County will be performing Chip Seal Operations this week. The chip sealing process consists of distributing a liquid asphalt emulsion on the roadway and covering the liquid asphalt with crushed stone to provide a new wearing surface. Once the asphalt has cured, any excess chips left on the roadway are swept from the surface. Chip sealing extends the life of a roadway by protecting it from moisture, ultraviolet degradation and other damaging exposures. In addition to sealing the pavement, chip seal applications reestablish surface friction – improving safety for the motoring public. Of the pavement preservation methods employed by the state, chip sealing is perhaps the most cost-effective. Studies show that every dollar invested in chip seal operations saves $6-14 in future roadway costs. 

The following roads will be closed for a two hour period while crews perform work, where possible there will be a posted detour route:

Riley Road from Oak to Primrose

Oak Road from SR 4 to Osborne

Pine Road from New to Roosevelt

New Road from SR 23 to Oak
