Emporia’s street reconditioning process takes new approach

Work to recondition a number of Emporia city streets will take the next step later this month. You may have already seen the streets that will be reconditioned without realizing it. These are the streets — mainly in downtown Emporia but also scattered across town — that have the gravel-type pebbles on the surface. This is called chat and is part of the process known as chipseal, which is replacing the city’s longstanding use of slurry seal. Public Works Director Dean Grant says this provides a bit of a cost savings while extending the life of street surfaces well beyond what slurry seal can do.
