The head of the City of Bend's Streets Department is not happy with its latest chip seal roadwork efforts. Hardy Hanson says it should last for seven years, but roads like Empire and 9th in Bend are starting to deteriorate within a year. “I think chip seal is not something that I just don’t want to do anymore. They’re very cost-effective when they work. But I have to have some confidence that they’ll work. So we’ll just keep looking at the problem. I’ve contacted people nationally that do chip seals to get some advice. I’ve got some good ideas. So we’ll look at some things; we’ll improve how we do it.”  The City isn't scheduled to do anymore chip seal work until next year. Hanson wants to make sure any potential problems are worked out by then before they do anymore work.
