Street resurfacing projects, including a high-performance surface sealant treatment and hot-in-place recycling, will be completed this summer and fall with work starting Aug. 7.
The work schedule can be affected by weather conditions, mechanical issues, and product availability. For updates on the paving schedule and a complete list of projects, visit https://transportation.georgetown.org/2023-street-maintenance-projects/.
Streets are selected for resurfacing treatments based on the Pavement Condition Index study that grades roadway surface conditions and recommends treatments based on road conditions and traffic volumes. The last study was completed in 2018. A new study will be completed later this year.
The City is using two types of street resurfacing products:
Hot-in-place recycling is an alternative to mill and asphalt overlay in which existing pavement is heated, removed, ground, and mixed with new material to create a new asphalt surface. This process is completed in a single pass with multiple machines in line to decrease the street closure timeline.
Streets in the Pecan Branch North, North College Street, Williams Addition, San Gabriel Heights, and River Ridge neighborhoods are scheduled for repaving this summer and fall. The schedule will be updated on this page and via Nextdoor and flyers will be placed on doors as work is scheduled.
Work in the Pecan Branch North neighborhood started on Aug. 7.
Streets will not be closed during hot-in-place repaving; however, drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to choose alternate routes. Flaggers will be present to assist drivers.
High-performance surface seal
As part of this surface treatment, a sealant is applied to the surface of the roadway, reducing damage from UV radiation, water, and vehicle traffic. Street sealant work is planned for streets in Thousand Oaks, River Bend, Sun City, Westhaven, LaConterra, and Pinnacle neighborhoods this summer and fall.
Sealant work will start on Aug. 16. The schedule will be updated on our website and via Nextdoor and flyers will be placed on doors as work is scheduled.
On the day work is scheduled, the streets will be closed to traffic for 24 hours. Streets will be blocked off at 8 a.m. and will be reopened the following day at 8 a.m.
