The technique provides a coarse, sandpaper-like surface designed to improve friction and reduce the likelihood of traffic running off the road.
The process begins with cleaning the road's surface. An epoxy is then applied followed by the application of small, coarse gravel to the road's surface.
The road will remain open to traffic. Flaggers will direct motorists through the work zones. Motorists can expect delays. Traffic accessing the work zone from adjacent driveways and roads can expect up to a 15-minute delay.
