Remington finished in time for Kapaun

Staff writer

Just in time for Father Emil Kapaun’s homecoming, work on Remington Rd. is finished.

County crews patched potholes on the road to Pilsen and spent this past week chip sealing it.

A striping crew is scheduled to arrive Thursday, county road superintendent Steve Hudson said.

“This is glazed hard clay,” he said as crews spread gravel over oily asphalt.

In chip sealing, workers apply a layer of oily adhesive to patched asphalt and cover it with a layer of rock, which is compacted into the asphalt with a roller.

The process is painstaking. Crews sealed about three miles of road a day.

The county has allowed slow traffic on Remington, which will be swept free of excess gravel so it can be painted.

“They have done projects on Nighthawk and 60th and 330th,” he said. “As soon as we get done chip sealing this and get a prep form approved, they’ll come in here and stripe.”
