Beginning June 10, the City’s Public Services Transportation Department will start street maintenance work in the Belvin Street and Downtown areas.                           

The street maintenance is part of the City’s Pavement Management Program, a $1.6 million annual street maintenance program that includes rating, repairing, and resurfacing existing roadways. 

“Extending the life of roadways requires regular maintenance. Our program utilizes a combination of preservation treatments, including asphalt overlay, slurry seal, crack sealing, and base repairs,” said Shawn Wolfshohl, Street Maintenance Manager.  “Annual preventative maintenance can extend the life of pavement from 10 to 15 years and delay expensive reconstruction costs.”

Maintenance projects include base repairs, milling, and overlaying of:

  • Belvin from Bishop to Dixon
  • Dixon from Belvin to Hopkins
  • Hutchison from North to Moore
  • North from Harvey to Lindsey
  • Mary from North to Lindsey
  • Burleson from North to Moore
  • Lindsey from North to Moore

Additionally, curb and an ADA compliant sidewalk will also be installed on the Belvin Street project. 

Weather permitting, the downtown project is scheduled to be completed by June 14.  The mill and overlay of Belvin Street project will be completed on June 10, and the Belvin Street sidewalk is scheduled to be completed in September 2019.

Street maintenance projects completed earlier this year include streets in the following neighborhoods:

  • Forest Hills 
  • East Guadalupe 
  • Westover Hills 
  • Castle Forest 
  • Sierra Circle

Motorists are encouraged to drive cautiously and watch for street maintenance crews during the construction.  For more information, please contact the Public Services Transportation Department at (512) 393-8036.
