Anticipated Timeframe and Notification of Work
The projected start date for the Town of Johnstown’s 2018 Chip Seal Project is June 4. The project date is tentative due to weather concerns and previously scheduled jobs ahead of Johnstown’s. It is expected that the chip seal project will take two to five days all together, outside of any delays. A-One will notify residents seven to five days in advance of work, and no-parking signs with listed dates of operation will go out 24 hours in advance of the start of work.

Purpose and Process
Chip seal is an economical surface treatment designed to protect and prolong the life of asphalt pavement. The process restores skid resistance, reduces aging, waterproofs the road surface and protects the underlying pavement from oxidation and traffic wear. An asphalt binder is applied, then immediately covered by a single layer of uniformly-sized chips. The new surface is then rolled to seat the aggregate and broom swept to remove any loose chips. A fog seal, a diluted asphalt emulsion, is then applied to the treated surface to give the roadway a black appearance, and to hold in the chips.

Project Cost
A-One has agreed to perform the work for $2.98/sy for ¼” aggregate chip seal, $3.39/sy for 3/8” aggregate chip seal, and $120 per hour for the chip seal sweeper for a total contract price not to exceed $250,000. A-One has successfully completed chip seal projects over the past 14 years in Johnstown and have also performed work in Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Lakewood, Arvada, Golden, Northglenn, Loveland, Frederick, Estes Park, etc.
