Street resurfacing work starts

Jun 24, 2024

Street resurfacing projects, including hot-in-place recycling and a high-performance surface sealant treatment, will be completed this summer and fall. The first milling and repaving work of the season started last week.

The work schedule can be affected by weather conditions, mechanical issues, and product availability. For information and updates on the paving schedule and a complete list of projects, visit https://transportation.georgetown.org/2024-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 most recent study was completed last year.

The City is using two types of street resurfacing products:

Hot-in-place recycling

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 Reata Trails, River Bend, Golden Oaks, Quail Meadow, Country Club, Rivery Park, River Oaks, Old Town, Anderson Addition, Wood Ranch, and University Park 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 Reata Trails, River Bend, and Golden Oaks neighborhoods started this week.

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 the Carlson Place, Saddle Creek, Fairhaven, and Arrowpoint neighborhoods this summer and fall.

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.
