Boise – As the chip seal season progresses, Ada County Highway District (ACHD) crews will begin restriping freshly chip sealed roads overnight. Torches, which are used as part of the striping process, can be noisy, and ACHD asks for patience as we work quickly to restripe the roads.
Newly chip sealed roads to be restriped
Night work is preferred for striping since it doesn’t impede daytime traffic, and likewise, crews can work uninhibited by traffic. This creates less inconvenience to the travelling public, and allows crews to finish the job of restriping more quickly.
ACHD is currently chip sealing Zone 5. Striping crews are presently working in the areas of Hill Road, Castle Drive, and Warm Springs. The paint crew will be striping/installing pavement markings after the final stage of the chip seal process (fog coating, which takes three days to a week to cure), before applying the paint/thermoplastic to the roadway. Crews expect restriping to take one to two nights in each area, depending on the location.
The Ada County Highway District once again kindly requests your patience while we restripe the roads in your neighborhood, and we apologize in advance for any disturbance or inconvenience.
