As the chipseal season prepares to wrap up ahead of schedule in the next couple of weeks, Ada County Highway District (ACHD) crews will work Sunday, August 11th, to resurface Overland Road between Meridian Road and Ten Mile Road.
Work will begin at 6 a.m. and is anticipated to be complete in the early afternoon hours. Motorists should expect delays, particularly at intersections where traffic signals will be in flashing red mode and flaggers will direct traffic. Motorists are urged to drive slowly to reduce the chance of flying rock.
Once the chipseal is applied, it must cure for approximately one week before the road can be sealed with a fog coating and new lane striping applied.
ACHD crews are currently ahead of their chipseal schedule by approximately one month and anticipate completing the season, which covers 125 miles of road, in the next two weeks.
Next week, crews will continue chipseal work in the following areas:
• Ten Mile Road between Interstate 84 and Longmont Road
• Side and residential streets bound by Amity Road and Lake Hazel Road and Cloverdale and Five Mile
• Maple Grove Road between Franklin Road and Emerald Street
Additionally, sweeper trucks and crews applying a fogseal, the final application in the chipseal process, will work throughout the county.
In residential areas, No Parking signs are placed along streets and chipseal notices are delivered door-to-door before work gets underway.
