City Chip Seal Project For 2108 Scheduled To Start Tuesday, August 7

Chip Seal

The City of Cheyenne will start its 2018 Chip Seal Program on Tuesday, August 7, weather permitting. The first phase of streets is scheduled to be completed in two weeks.

Mayor Marian Orr, who campaigned for better roads, said she is pleased with the progress the City is making with street improvements since she took office in 2017. “When I ran for office people told me they wanted their roads fixed. The chip seal program made significant improvements in our streets last year and this year will be no different. We are taking streets in good condition and extending the life of those streets with the chip seal process.”

The streets in this first phase are:

  • Carey Avenue, West Lincolnway to Kennedy Road
  • Randall Avenue, I-25 to West 27th Street
  • East Fifth Street, Warren Avenue to Logan Avenue viaduct
  • Morrie Avenue, East Fox Farm Road to East Fifth Street
  • Ninth Street, Deming Drive to Bradley Avenue
  • Waltersheid Boulevard, West College Drive to West Fox Farm Road
  • Powderhouse Road, Storey Boulevard to Dell Range Boulevard
  • South Parsley Boulevard, West College Drive to I-80 overpass
  • East Pershing Boulevard, Windmill Road to County Line (just west of Cleveland Avenue)
  • East 12th Street, North College Drive to Sun Valley Drive
  • Cleveland Avenue, East 12th Street to East Lincolnway
  • Taft Avenue, Raleigh Drive to East Pershing Boulevard
  • Windmill Road, Sheridan Street to Pineridge Avenue
  • Henderson Drive, East Pershing Boulevard to Omaha Road
  • Ridge Road, Storey Boulevard to East 12th Street
  • Nationway, Logan Avenue to Ridge Road

Chip seal is a three-step process which includes an application of asphalt oil, then a layer of crushed rock, and then another layer of oil to an existing asphalt pavement surface. The street is swept to remove any rock that didn’t adhere to the oil. The chip seal process is a moving operating and there will be temporary traffic delays on each street during the process. To avoid delays, motorists are reminded to find alternate routes to get to their destination.

Motorists are reminded to obey the speed limit in construction zones. Lower speed limits are posted to avoid broken windshields. Funding for this project is from the City’s Fifth-Penny Sales Tax.
