BOONE AND CLINTON COUNTIES – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a chip seal preservation project is scheduled to begin on U.S. 421 on Monday, June 29, weather permitting. Work is scheduled to begin on U.S. 421 from S.R. 47 to just south of S.R. 38 in Kirklin.  Then crews will move to U.S. 421 from the north junction of S.R. 38 up to Rossville. Work is scheduled to last through Thursday, July 2.

Drivers can expect lane restrictions and traffic directed by flagging operations while INDOT maintenance crews maintain access for vehicles. Motorists are urged to seek an alternate route. If driving through the chip seal work zone, drivers should take extra caution, drive slowly and allow additional space between vehicles to prevent stone chips from damaging windshields or paint.

Once the chip seal has cured, crews will sweep the highway clear of loose stone, apply a fog seal surface coat and paint pavement markings.
