So sick of this attitude.

Yes it is. But if you suspect that the purpose is to annoy motorcyclists, that would be incorrect.

The County is chip sealing several roads this year in preparation to striping with a durable stripe material that will not require replacing for up to seven years.

Fun fact: Every County road is re-striped every year. This is mostly due to the wear from winter sanding and cleaning, which wears away the stripes.

Ben Howard is an especially difficult road to stripe, as the pavement must be dry to apply striping, and it can take several days of very warm and sunny weather to fully dry that road.

Another road on the list to be chip-sealed is Jordan Road, and it will also receive the durable striping.

After chip-sealing and striping, these roads will not need to be re-striped or chip-sealed for up to seven years.

WSDOT has been using the durable striping material for several years now with very good results.

Here's the County overlay/chip-seal program website:

Here's the specific road project page with further information on the durable striping program:

Rode HBR yesterday and it's not THAT bad. Most of the gravel has been removed by cars. Any gravel that's left, is in the center of the lane, so stay in the car tire tracks in blind corners, as you should be doing anyways, and you should be fine. If you are smooth rider with good (read: safe) lines, HBR can still be done at a spirited pace with no problems whatsoever.

People who believe that the county spread gravel all over the road to prevent motorcyclist from riding it need to seriously reevaluate their conspiracy BS meter.

Don't forget to wheelie for safety.
