Lane closures on Logansport Bypass through June 2

Last Updated on May 26, 2015 by cassnetwork

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces lane closures on the U.S. 24/35 Logansport Bypass beginning tomorrow (5/27)  through Tuesday, June 2 for chip seal and fog seal work to preserve the road surface. Drivers are encouraged to find another route due to the presence of loose stone and liquid asphalt. If you are driving through the area, slow down and allow additional space between vehicles. This project is dependent on dry weather and may be delayed if conditions aren’t ideal.

Chip/fog seal projects prevent potholes and extend the life of roadways, which maximizes taxpayer dollars. The chip-seal 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. Chip-sealing extends the life of a roadway by protecting it from moisture, ultra-violet degradation, and any other damaging exposures. The fog seal is applied on top of the chip-seal work. The fog seal is a light application of asphalt material that can lock in loose stone and help with dust problems.
