Chip Sealing Begins In June
Weather permitting the City of Nampa Street Division will begin to chip seal streets on Monday, June 2, 2014. Drivers will want to reduce speeds during the chip sealing process and avoid parking on the street when they receive notice of chip sealing in their area. Thank you for your patience.
Chip sealing is a common pavement maintenance practice that significantly extends pavement life. Chip sealing also saves the City money, it is about one-fourth to one-fifth the cost of a conventional asphalt overlay.
This year the Street Division will chip and fog seal approximately 13 miles of City streets in the following order.

When sweeping is complete the Street Division will fog seal all of the chip sealed roads. Finally, after fog sealing, roads will be painted.
Striping is almost complete. Crosswalks and miscellaneous painting should be complete next few weeks with a week of night work. Please drive with caution when you see work crews in the roadway. The weeds have grown. Our weed crew has been around the City taking care of the right of ways and islands. Patching to follow in the next few weeks. Thank you for you patience.
