Chino Valley in Brief: 2018 Chino Valley Chip Seal Project
2018 Chino Valley Chip Seal Project
On July 23, the Town of Chino Valley will begin the complete pulverization and reconstruction of the following roads: Reed Road from Road 3 North to Road 4 North, Road 4 North from Reed Road to just west of Road 1 West and Chino Drive from Center Street to the end.
The reconstruction process will take approximately 3 to 6 weeks. Expect the roads to be closed to all but local traffic only during this time. The road condition will be a gravel surface during construction. Alternate routes are advised to avoid delays.
In addition, the following roads will receive a chip seal surface in mid to late August: Outer Loop Road from Road 1 West to Highway 89, and Road 1 East from Perkinsville Road to Road 4 North.
Traffic striping may be eliminated for a time during the seal coating process, but closures will be limited to just a few days. Alternate routes are also advised for these streets.
Please obey all construction signs and workers. The Town of Chino Valley would like to thank the public for their patience during this time.
For additional information, please contact the Public Works Department at 928-636-7140 with any questions. Chino Valley is also on the web at www.chinoaz.net.
