WORK BEGINS ON CAPE SEAL PROJECT, STREETS WILL BE CLOSED 8/5/2021
Work has begun on the cape seal project in Green River and several streets will be closed in the next two to four weeks. Engineer Andy Hooten says R and D Sweeping from Rock Springs is currently doing the first of three phases of the project that will affect 26 streets.
Phase one is patching work on the streets and once that is complete, the second phase is putting down a scrub seal, which fills the cracks, followed by a slurry seal. The project is similar to chip seal. Residents on each street will be asked to clear the street once phase two begins. Hooten says the City hopes to have the project completed by the end of the month.
Advanced Paving and Construction is the main contractor. The Council in May awarded a $673,000 contract, which is funds from the expired 6th penny. Approximately 5.8 miles of streets will be rehabilitated. Hooten says the City believes the project will give streets several more years of useful life.
