QUINCY — Chip sealing and cape sealing road preservation work will start Monday andwill be completed during the course of the next two to three weeks at five locations in Adams County, covering approximately 12 miles of roads.

The five locations are:

  • East 1700th Street from Ill. 336 north to the Hancock County line.
  • East 500th Street from North 2850th Ave south to the Bear Creek Bridge.
  • Marcelline Road from East 500th Street east to Ill. 96.
  • North Bottom Road from Point Pleasant Road north to North 1850th Ave.
  • North 2150th Ave from the levee east to East 500th Street.

The work will consist of four phases:

  1. The removal of the existing pavement markings.
  2. Application of a chip seal. (Road will be lightly swept but loose aggregate is still possible.)
  3. Application of an emulsion based microsurface within 10 days of the chip seal application.
  4. Pavement marking.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in the construction zones. Delays are possible.

Motorists are advised that centerline striping will be removed or covered for the duration of the work at each location. Motorists should also be aware of fresh oil and loose gravel at these locations. Drivers are asked to obey the work zone speed limit signs and other construction zone signing.

A.C. Pavement Striping Co. of Elgin is the prime contractor for these projects.
