Nampa Starts Chip Sealing Today
Nampa has announced that it's time to begin the chip sealing process once again. Today, the city announced that today would start their annual maintenance project that is the bane of all who drive on our roads.
Nampa believes that most of their chip sealing work will be completed by the end of August. The Nampa Street Divisions plan is to chip seal 11 arterial roads along with 15 subdivisions. Work begins on the arterial roads, the first beginning at Sunny Ridge Road at East Holly Street from Greenhurst to Colorado. Following that work, chip sealing will start on Constitution Way from Sunny Ridge to 12th Avenue.
Nampa joins their colleagues in Ada County High District, who are beginning their chip sealing efforts today. Nampa has shared some tips on how to avoid the delays while roads are being maintained. Here is a list of safety tips courtesy of the Nampa Street Division.
- 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
