ACHD crews to chipseal this Sunday on two Boise roads

Boise- Ada County Highway District (ACHD) chipseal crews will work this Sunday (July 10) on two heavily traveled roadways:

  • Cole Road between Overland Road and Victory Road
  • Victory Road between Cole Road and Orchard Street

Crews will begin work in the morning hours around 7 a.m. and anticipate working into the evening. Motorists should expect reduced speeds, possible delays, and large equipment along these roadways.
Working during weekend hours will create fewer impacts to traffic and allow crews to work more quickly.

About Chipsealing

This chipseal season ACHD crews will resurface approximately 220 miles of road in the areas of west Boise, east Meridian and in areas of Boise between Fairview and Victory, and Orchard and Cole. Chipsealing is a cost-effective way of combating the deterioration of roads caused by sun and weather and involves a multi-step process that helps seal the road surface, providing an armor coat for skid and weather resistance. Every nine years a road receives a chipseal.
