BROOKINGS – If you tried to drive in the downtown Brookings area Tuesday morning, you would have found the streets blocked off. 

Brookings Street Department personnel and Topkote Inc. from Yankton were doing chip sealing work on the three blocks of Main Avenue and two blocks of Fifth and Fourth streets. Above, the Topkote crew works on the road in the 400 block of Fifth Street.

Chip sealing in various locations in town started Monday and will continue this week until completed, according to the City of Brookings. A map of the work areas can be found online at
