2014 Overlays (Road Resurfacing)

General Description:

Overlays are underway in many locations. A list of locations and timelines is below
Approximate time frames for overlay work are added  closer to the start of construction. Please check back as the list of road segments will be added to and updates to construction schedules will be made, as schedules are impacted by weather and subject to change.

Subdivision Overlays

Beginning on or around June 6, 2014, crews working for ACHD will begin work to overlay (resurface) residential streets within neighborhoods in Southeast Boise, West Boise Bench, and South Boise, Northwest Boise, North Boise, Kuna and Meridian.

What is an overlay?

Each year the condition of roads throughout Ada County is closely assessed and a priority system is used to determine which roads have the greatest need for re-surfacing. Overlay work generally involves the milling and removal of two inches of existing (failed) asphalt. A fresh layer of asphalt is then applied to the roadway, which will also receive new lane markings. The road segments selected are based on an in-depth ranking system that accounts for wear and deterioration. Pedestrian sidewalk ramps located along the overlay road sections will be removed and replaced if they are not in compliance with Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.

Impacts During Construction

Overlay work is typically a fast moving process, but includes several steps, some of which can involve, but are not limited to:

  • General construction noise
  • Ground vibration
  • Equipment safety back up alarms
  • Dust
  • Night work lighting
  • Temporary lane restrictions & delays
  • Pedestrian impacts (sidewalk ramps not compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards will be removed and replaced)
  • Reduced speeds
  • Flaggers directing traffic
  • Jackhammering around utility manholes in roadways and on pedestrian ramps
  • Uneven driving surface

Night Work

Work on some road segments will be done at night, typically between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. Working at night  allows construction to occur faster and under safer conditions for residents, motorists and crews, and can reduce the need for lane restrictions or closures. Oftentimes night work is done on roadways and intersections that carry high volumes of traffic where significant impacts to daytime traffic would occur.
