The following projects are planned for the summer of 2019. Projects are expected to being June 1 and continue through December 1. All projects are dependent upon weather.

Chip Seal is a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layer(s) of asphalt with one or more layer(s) of fine aggregate. The chip seal treatment is performed by a contract vendor. In preparation for the chip seal, Elbert County Road and Bridge crews will be performing crack seal and patching to the listed roadways. The crack seal and patching allows the chip seal to adhere to the roadway and increases the life of the Chip Seal treatment greatly. Crack seal and patching are not intended to "look pretty". The Chip Seal treatment will be beautiful!
