The City of Cortez will be doing a chip-seal project this summer. Oldcastle SW Group, Inc., dba United Companies of Mesa County, is the City’s contractor. United Companies will be chip sealing various streets within the City beginning on Thursday, June 21, and continuing for approximately one week. Residents are asked to not park on the streets during daylight hours and to use caution while watering (so the sprinklers or excess water does not get the streets wet). The cooperation of the public is greatly appreciated, and will help in ensuring a quality job for the residents of Cortez. United Companies’ hours of operation on the project will be approximately 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday. While area residents may experience slight delays, the City will attempt to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. After the chip seal is complete, crews will be returning in the following day or two to sweep and pick up the loose chips.
The following streets will be affected:
10th Street: Chestnut to Market
13th Street: Chestnut to Madison
