The city of Georgetown expects to spend $2.8 million on 129 street resurfacing projects that will be completed through the summer, according to city staff.

Last year the city spent $2.7 million on street resurfacing projects, according to the Georgetown Systems Engineering Department.

Resurfacing projects will include a high-performance surface seal treatment and hot-in-place recycling, according to a July 8 news release.

A high-performance surface seal is a sealant applied to the surface of the roadway, reducing damage from ultraviolet radiation, water and vehicle traffic, according to the release.

Hot-in-place recycling is an alternative to mill and asphalt overlay in which existing pavement is removed, ground and mixed with new material to create a new asphalt surface, the release said.


During the work schedule for surface seal treatment in the Old Mill Crossing, Pleasant Valley, Quail Valley and portions of Sun City neighborhoods, the streets will be closed to traffic and street parking from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to the release.

High-performance surface seal treatments scheduled in portions of Berry Creek, Gatlin Creek, and Lakeside at Lake Georgetown will close streets for 24 hours from 7 a.m.-7 a.m. On the day hot-in-place recycling is scheduled, the streets will not be closed, but residents should expect delays and plan for alternate routes, it said.

A full list of projects, updates on paving schedule and completion of projects will be posted here.
