Motorists traveling through Fayette on Moosehill Road will have to seek an alternate route Friday because of road construction.

The work is expected to take only one day, according to Fayette Town Manager Mark Robinson.

He said the work involves a chip seal process, and that the groundwork was laid more than a month ago when the road received a full width cold mix asphalt shim and overlay.

“Liquid asphalt will be sprayed on recently laid cold-mix asphalt, and then stone chips are added and rolled in,” Robinson said. “This is a less expensive alternative to hot top and more flexible during the frost and thaw cycles.”

He said the project, which covers the entire 0.8 miles of Moosehill Road in Fayette, is costing the town about $82,000.

Motorists traveling on that road can use Route 17 as an alternate route, Robinson said.
