Every year, Denver Public Works engineers prioritize the City's paving needs and create a paving plan for work to be completed.
Week of August 18:
- One Street Maintenance crew will finish-up milling and paving in Platte Park from Louisiana to Evans and Logan to Downing. They will then start milling and paving along East 14th Avenue from Broadway to Washington.
- A second Street Maintenance crew will finish-up milling and paving in Villa Park from 6th Avenue to 12th Avenue and Knox to Perry St. They will then begin milling and paving in the Virginia Vale neighborhood from Leetsdale to Cherry Creek North Drive and Monaco to Quebec.
- The contracted Hot-In-Place-Recycle crew will continue paving in the Congress Park neighborhood from 6th to Colfax and Josephine to Steele.
- A contracted Mill and Overlay crew continues to work in the Southmoor neighborhood from Hampden to Happy Canyon to I-25.
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
