(City of Pocatello Press Release, March 23, 2021)
The list of which Pocatello roads are getting a bit of TLC from the Street Operations Department in 2021 is now available.
Recently, the department published the 2021 Paving Plan. The plan details which roads should be completely resurfaced or will receive a chip seal, a fog-seal, or a micro-seal treatment. This year the department is anticipating staff will treat 36.63 miles of City streets.
“Each year, we do a complete analysis of all the City’s roads using modeling software,” said Tom Kirkman, Deputy Public Works Director. “The analysis determines which roads will be treated and which treatment method will give us the most return on our investment.”
