Street Division Updates

CITY OF NAMPA TO BEGIN CHIP SEALING JUNE 1

2021 Pavement Work_nb

The City of Nampa’s Street Division will begin chip sealing streets Tues., June 1, 2021 and is estimated to be completed by the end of August, weather permitting.

Chip sealing is a common, cost effective, pavement maintenance practice that extends pavement life and improves driving surface. Chip sealing is about one-fourth to one-fifth the cost of a conventional asphalt overlay. 

This year, 11 arterial road sections and 15 subdivisions will be chip sealed. Arterials will be chip sealed before subdivisions with the first arterial road being Sunny Ridge Road at East Holly Street from Greenhurst to Colorado, followed by Constitution Way from Sunny Ridge Road to 12th Avenue. (A complete list is located below; see attached brochure for map.) Staff hopes to complete chipping, fog sealing, paint and thermoplastic applications by the end of August.

Important reminders for drivers and residents:

  • The speed zone in chip zones areas is 20 mph.
  • Please help keep workers safe. Be mindful of crews working in chip seal areas.
  • Parking on streets during the chip seal process is prohibited from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Once signage is removed, street parking may be resumed. Every attempt will be made to notify owners of vehicles parked in the right-of-way prior to towing

Note: With limited signs the NO PARKING signs will be moved from one subdivision to the next. This does not mean that the subdivision is complete.
