Every year, Denver Public Works engineers prioritize the City's paving needs and create a paving plan for work to be completed.
Week of July 28:
One Street Maintenance crew has finished milling and paving on York Street from 26th to 39th. The crew will now continue to mill and pave in Platte Park/Rosedale from I-25 to Harvard Ave. and Broadway to Downing St.
A second Street Maintenance crew will wrap-up paving in the Hampden South neighborhood from Jarvis to Princeton and Quebec to Spruce. They will be milling in the Observatory Park neighborhood from Evans to Yale and Steele to Colorado.
The contracted Hot-In-Place-Recycle crew will be paving in the Congress Park neighborhood from 6th to Colfax and Josephine to Steele.
Another contracted crew continues to work in the Marston neighborhood, paving the streets south and west of the green belt in Marston down to Belleview and Kipling.
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
