Why does the County apply Chip Seal to a road?

Chip seals enhance safety by providing good skid resistance. Chip seals provide an effective moisture barrier for the underlying pavement against water intrusion by sealing cracks in the pavement to prevent deterioration of the asphalt surface from the effects of aging and oxidation due to water and sun.
