Town of Pinedale update Chip sealing road work
by Town of Pinedale
September 20, 2016
Another project to keep Pinedale well maintained and beautiful for current and future generations is hitting full swing. For the months, our own Public Works staff has been filling potholes and building up road edges with a combination of pea gravel and tar based emulsion. This is to give the chip seal that will be applied a good base. Starting the 16th of September (weather permitting), and continuing for approximately 2 weeks, a contractor will be applying chip seal to certain roads and streets.
Chip seal is a process where a tar is placed over the existing road way and then gravel is applied to it, embedded in the tar. Its purpose is to seal cracks, provide additional wear surface, and to give added protection against UV light that causes the breakdown of the road surface.
So, when you see the chip seal contractor, slow down, allow for ample space between you and the work zone.Please be happy your Public Works Department is more dedicated than ever to efficient and effective maintenance of your Town. Infrastructure maintenance may not be glamorous, but it is essential to the health of the Town.
Residents and businesses that will be affected by road closures will be notified. A complete map of 2016 work is available on our website.
Additionally,the Town of Pinedale is applying for a conditional use permit to construct a communications tower at a maximum height of 60 feet at the Department of Public Works (61 Pinedale South Road, Pinedale, WY 82941). The property is located within the Utility Zone District and includes 25.73 acres. A public hearing about the project will be held Monday, October 3rd at 6:00 PM at the Sublette County Library in the Lovatt Room.
As always, we will keep you posted with up to date information on these and other projects. Information may be found at www.townofpinedale.us.
