NAMPA, Idaho — The City of Nampa will begin chip sealing streets on June 1 and he work is estimated to be completed by early August. Chip sealing is a 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, eight arterial road sections and 19 subdivisions will be chip sealed. Arterials will be chip sealed before subdivisions with the first arterial road being Greenhurst Rd. from Midland Blvd. to Lake Ave. followed by W. Iowa Ave. from Midland Blvd. to Midway Rd.

  • The speed zone in chip zones areas is 20 mph.
