No street parking during chip-seal project

Posted

PINEDALE – The town of Pinedale is gearing up to treat certain streets with chip-seal this summer. Crews will be applying chip-seal in the southeast quadrant of town – south of Pine Street and east of Pine Creek, said Abram Pearce, director of public works.

The project is expected to begin on Thursday, July 27.

Parking is prohibited on town streets in that section during the course of the project and town staff will ask residents to remove cars from the streets before work begins. If residents and visitors do not remove their cars as requested by town staff, the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office will be asked to intervene.

The chip-seal project typically takes roughly a week to complete, Pearce said. Crews clean the street, apply crack seal, lay down a coat of oil, cover the coat with chips, roll the layers down and allow cars to drive over the chip-seal for a few days before adding the final fog coat, Pearce explained.

Once the fog coat is applied, returning streets to a black color, residents and visitors may once again park on the street.
