6 Streets Closed on Thursday for chip sealing

Six streets in the City of Globe will be closed Thursday, April 23 for chip and fog sealing.

They are:

Patricia Drive (Crestview to end);

Holley Road;

Holley Circle (Hunter Drive to end);

East Thornwood Drive (Agave to end);

Thornwood Drive (Agave to end; and

Ice House Canyon Road (City limits to Six Shooter Canyon Road).

No traffic will be permitted in these areas and all vehicles need to be removed from the street.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience it may cause.

Call Richard Thomas at 928-200-1295 with any questions.

As an authorized subcontractor, Cactus Asphalt is currently conducting the city’s chip and fog seal project. 

All inquiries, questions, requests or complaints about the project should be addressed to the city.

Project approved by the Globe City Council

Last night, during its April 22 special meeting, the Globe City Council unanimously approved the contract, using a cooperative agreement between Pinal County and Cactus Asphalt. The amount–not to exceed $760,000–is funded through the half-cent excise tax and HURF (Highway Users Revenue Fund) money, said Jerry Barnes, the city’s public works director.

The city’s preventative maintenance program currently includes patching and crack sealing, which city staff is able to do. However, the program also includes chip, fog seal coating and asphalt paving (mill and fill) which an outside contractor does for the city, Barnes said.

The city benefits in both time and money with a competitive rate already established in the Pinal County bidding process, Barnes said.

The six streets to be repaired April 23 were presented to City Council at its April 2 special meeting.
