Every year, Denver Public Works engineers prioritize the City's paving needs and create a paving plan for work to be completed.
Week of September 2:
- A contracted crew will begin milling and paving on Santa Fe from 6th Ave to Colfax, with work permitted to occur from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on September 2nd and 3rd and in the overnight hours on September 4th from 7:00 pm to 5:00 am.
- One Street Maintenance crew will finish-up paving 14th Avenue from Broadway to Colorado and then begin milling in Mar Lee/Harvey Park from Florida to Evans and Federal to Lowell.
- A second Street Maintenance crew will continue work in the Virginia Vale neighborhood from Leetsdale to Cherry Creek North Drive and Monaco to Quebec.
- A contracted Hot-In-Place-Recycle crew will continue work in Congress Park from 6th to Colfax and Josephine to Steele and begin working on Grant and Logan from 6th to 20th. Hot-In-Place-Recycle operations will also continue in North Lowry from 11th to 13th and Quebec to Yosemite.
Treatment for Roadways:
- Hot-In-Place-Recycle (HIPR) heats the top inch of existing asphalt pavement and mixes this with new asphalt. This process is less expensive and more environmental friendly than mill and overlay and provides a pavement that will last 8 to 10 years
- Chipseal and the related Capeseal are minor surface treatments, relatively inexpensive, that seal and restore the surface of a pavement and adds 6-8 years of life to a pavement
- Mill/Overlay is a major process where typically the top 2" of pavement are removed by grinding and replaced with new asphalt. This process adds approximately 12 years to the life of a pavement
- Major Machine Patch crews cut out section of the roadway for repair anywhere from 50' to 200' long and 10' to 30' wide and 8" deep and apply 7 tons or more of asphalt for repair
