Monett’s Chip and Seal work for the 2024 summer season is scheduled to begin Monday, July 1.
This year, the Monett Street Department will be conducting chip and seal operations north of Cleveland Avenue between 9th Street and Central Avenue, an area that has been labeled the Plumb Group. Crews intend to work from the northern area of the neighborhood and work their way south over the course of the summer.

The Plumb Group was originally slated for chip sealing in 2026 but has been prioritized this year.
During work, residents who will be impacted will be notified about incoming phases as crews approach their location via door hangers.
Public Works Superintendent Dave Dunn said the Street Department said the chip and seal schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions and other factors, such as emergency repairs in other locations.
The department has prepared the area for chip sealing this spring by sealing cracks, cold patching potholes and removing vegetation from the area slated for work.  
In addition to chip sealing the Plumb Group, the Road Department will be chip sealing a parking lot at North Park and the roads located at South Park. Work at South Park will not begin until after the Independence Day holiday.
