Street Division Updates

Chip Seal Map 2022

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.

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: We are asking not to park on the street as the sweepers will need to sweep up all loose chips. Once fog seal is complete, street parking can resume. Striping and thermo will start after fog seal.
