The benefits of using locally produced chip seals in areas of the world where high-quality construction aggregates are scarce are enumerated in this article. Because many pavements requiring preservation are low-volume roads, they may not require the high-quality aggregates necessary on higher-traffic-volume roads. So if acceptable chip-seal performance on low-volume roads could be demonstrated using locally available aggregates which have been minimally processed, the results would be a reduction in costs and more efficient use of resources. Tests were performed on pavement sections in Colorado, and their condition was evaluated. Details are also presented for materials chosen, their design, and construction of the test sections. Results of the performance analysis show no significant difference between the control and experimental chips.
