Weather permitting, the city of Nampa Street Division will begin to chip seal streets on Monday, June 6. Nampa plans to chip seal 15.6 miles of city streets for a cost of $574,576.
Drivers are cautioned to reduce speeds during the chip sealing process and avoid parking on affected streets when they receive notice of chip sealing in their areas.
There are fourteen road sections that will be chip sealed, the first being Franklin Boulevard from Birch Lane to the city limits north of Elm Lane, followed by Elm Lane from Franklin Boulevard east to Prescott Lane. The remaining chip seal will be on the north side of town beginning with Cherry Lane. See the complete list of roads to be chip sealed below, along with a link to a map and FAQ concerning chip sealing.
When all of the scheduled roads are chip sealed, crews will proceed to fog seal and then finally to re-stripe the roads.
The Street Division website will be updated with work progress, along with any weather related delays. Visit: http://www.cityofnampa.us/streets.
Chip sealing is a common, cost effective, pavement maintenance practice that extends pavement life and provides a good driving surface. Chip sealing is about one-fourth to one-fifth the cost of a conventional asphalt overlay.
