The pavement in this section of SR 6 had deteriorated due to normal age and wear.
This project paved and chip sealed approximately 16 miles of SR 6 in both directions between Pe Ell and I-5. The project also installed new signs, striping, and reflective pavement markings, and updated several wheelchair ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
Chip sealing repairs roadway damage and extends the life of the roadway. This treatment improves safety for drivers by creating a highly skid-resistant surface and reducing glare. To learn more about the chip seal process, visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/regions/eastern/chipseal.
Motorist safety and drivability will be enhanced due to a smoother road surface. Also, the project improved access for pedestrians and people with disabilities.
| Economic Incentive
The new surface will require less repair work and reduce maintenance costs.
