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 29:
- One Street Maintenance crew will finish up paving in Mar Lee from Florida to Evans and Federal to Lowell. They will then begin paving in Harvey Park from Yale to Dartmouth and Newton to Vrain.
- A second Street Maintenance crew will be paving in Hale/Montclair from 6th to 8th and Colorado to Monaco.
- A contracted Hot-In-Place-Recycle crew will continue work on North Grant from Speer to 20th. Hot-In-Place-Recycle operations will also continue in North Lowry from 11th to 13th and Quebec to Yosemite. Depending on the weather forecast, they may also begin milling on south Logan from I-25 to Yale.
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
