Chip seal work on S. Idaho St.

— Residents in the Grangeville chip sealing project area may hear industrial traffic starting Sunday night, as the city sweeps up excess rock from the week-long project.

Valley Sweeping of Lewiston will begin Sunday night, Aug. 1, around 5 p.m., working the southwestern portion of town until 1 or 2 a.m. for up to three days. The work is conducted at this time when temperatures start to cool, so only excess chips will be recovered and not pulled out of the freshly applied asphalt.

Contractor Herco of Lewiston is conducting the $179,670 project on all paved streets in the southwest corner of town; generally in an area south from Main Street between E and Idaho streets.

As of Thursday, July 30, city clerk Tonya Kennedy said the project is going well, and residents are cooperating by parking off-street for the duration.

“Thanks to everyone!” she said.
