Meridian- Motorists and residents can expect to see Ada County Highway District (ACHD) chipseal crews working this Sunday (August 14) in the following areas:
Chipseal crews to work this weekend in Meridian; drivers should expect delays
- Locust Grove Road from Chinden Boulevard to Fairview Avenue
- McMillan Road from Locust Grove Road to Cloverdale Road
- Ustick Road from Duane Drive to Locust Grove Road
Work will begin at 5 a.m. and continue until crews are done with all of the road sections. Motorists should expect reduced speeds, possible delays and large equipment and crews working in the roadway.
Working weekends on busy roads reduces impacts to traffic and allows crews to work faster and in a safer environment.
The 2011 chipseal season is anticipated to wrap up in mid-September.
This chipseal season ACHD crews are resurfacing 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.
