Since 2011, the Oregon Association of County Engineers and Surveyors has hosted regular Chip Seal Conferences for agencies and their personnel responsible for road maintenance in Oregon and Washington. The conferences, which have been held approximately every three years, provide a forum for peer presentations focused on how different agencies approach the preventive maintenance practice of chip sealing. The primary goal of these conferences is to allow agencies to share ideas, discuss what’s working and what’s not working within their pavement management programs, and provide technical education and advice.
Below, you will find links to presentations from our past three conferences. Please feel free to use these presentations as a resource for yourself and your agency.
