In June of 2021, Salinas City Council approved and awarded the 2021 Chip Seal Project to VSS International. Construction crews have begun removing the existing pavement markings and sealing cracks at the project locations. Chip seal will be applied and new striping will be installed. 

Chip seals are a protective surface treatment applied to existing roadways. This year's project is focused on several arterial streets. 2021 Chip Seal Project provides a map and construction schedule (schedule subject to change). Drivers are asked to be especially alert and cautious within the construction zones. Delays can be expected and alternate routes are encouraged when possible.
