Beginning August 10, 2015, the Baker City Public Works Department will be chip sealing a number of city streets. It is expected that this work will last for four days. The chip seal process extends the life of a street by restoring vital asphalt pavement components that are lost through the aging and oxidation process. By sealing the street, moisture is unable to penetrate below the asphalt surface. Additionally, recently paved surfaces will receive a fog seal coat on August 17. A map showing the streets to be treated during the 2015 project is attached.
A minimum 48-hours notice will be provided to residents affected by the street improvement project. Please expect traffic delays and possible rerouting of traffic during this project. Should inclement weather conditions or mechanical issues arise, the street work will be rescheduled for the next available work day.
Your cooperation and patience during this project is appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact Baker City Public Works at (541) 524-2063 or (541) 524-2046.
