Street Division Updates
2022 CHIP SEAL UPDATES
The City of Nampa’s Street Division will begin chip sealing streets Monday, June 6, 2022 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, 23 arterial road sections and 3 subdivisions will be chip sealed. Arterials will be chip sealed before subdivisions with the first arterial road being Midway Rd - W Orchard Ave to W Karcher Rd 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.
