City Street Department crews will begin reconstruction work on Burleson Road between 577 and Little Sandy Creek Monday at 8:00am. Work will last approximately two weeks.
The Street Resurfacing Process
During the reconstruction process, the existing street surface is ground up and cement added to the material to stabilize it. You will be able to drive on the street, but you should expect the area to be dusty for a short period of time. If necessary, we will periodically spray water on the mixture to lessen the dust; that may cause the street to get muddy.
After three days, the street will be smoothed out and a coating of oil will be applied to the surface. That will eliminate the dust as well as keep any rainwater from penetrating into the material. It does take a few days for the oil to fully soak in, but it is drivable after the first day.
After all the sections have been reconstructed, the entire street will be seal coated; during that process another layer of oil will be sprayed and a layer of rock added. During the time the crews are seal-coating, the road will be closed to traffic.
Tom Green Street is one of approximately twelve thoroughfare streets that are being reconstructed. Our plan is to have an asphalt contractor overlay all these streets with hot mix this fall.
We can't do this work without causing some inconvenience to you. Please be patient during the reconstruction process and please do not park your vehicles in the street during that time. Thank you.
