Chip sealing starts July 7 on Idaho 55 between Horseshoe Bend and Donnelly and will continue for three weeks, the Idaho Transportation Department reports.
The work is intended to extend the life of the pavement.
Construction will start in Horseshoe Bend and continue north for the project’s duration. Crews will work Monday through Thursday, with the exception of Monday, July 6, ITD reports. Work is planned during daylight hours with some brooming activities at night.
The roadway will remain open during construction, but will be reduced to one lane in the work zone with a pilot car and flaggers assisting motorists. Delays are expected, and drivers are encouraged to slow down and pay attention.
Poe Asphalt Paving is the project contractor. The contract amount is $2.4 million.
