DENVER (CBS4)- Every year, Denver Public Works engineers prioritize the City’s paving needs and create a paving plan for work to be completed. This year hundreds of miles of streets will be repaved.

The project kicks off later this week. Thanks to voters there will be even more cone zones.

The first neighborhoods include the Sunnyside and the Highlands north of Interstate 25 from Pecos to Inca and 32nd to 44th.

Crews will be working their way north and south from that area.

The process is called rotomilling where crews operate equipment that takes off the top two inches of pavement and grinds it up. Those two inches are replaced by new asphalt.

By the time this season’s repaving project is complete 380 miles will have had some work completed.

Seventy-five miles are thanks to funding from ballot measure 2A which passed in 2012.

While the paving work is under way residents won’t be able to park on the sides of the streets from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.

To see if your street is on the list for 2013, please visit a special section of denvergov.org.
