Residents of several Georgetown neighborhoods can expect to see improved roadways this year.

The city of Georgetown began resurfacing neighborhood streets this summer and will continue upgrades throughout the remainder of the year.

What you need to know

The city launched a $7.06 million project to mill and repave certain neighborhood roads in June. The process—known as hot-in-place recycling—involves heating, removing, grounding and mixing existing pavement with new materials to form a new asphalt surface, according to city information.

The pavement condition of city streets is assessed every three years to determine which roads are replaced or resurfaced, Georgetown Communications Manager Keith Hutchinson said.

Hot-in-place recycling work is underway in the Reata Trails and River Bend neighborhoods, he said. The project will also take place at the following neighborhoods through December:
  • Golden Oaks
  • Quail Meadow
  • Country Club
  • Rivery Park
  • River Oaks Old Town
  • Anderson Addition
  • Wood Ranch
  • University Park
In late July, the city will start a $1.54 million endeavor to apply high-performance surface sealant to street surfaces, Hutchinson said. The city applies the treatment to roadways each summer and fall to reduce damage from traffic, water and UV radiation, according to city information.

The following neighborhoods will receive the treatment through this fall:
  • Carlson Place
  • Saddle Creek
  • Fairhaven
  • Arrowpoint
What to expect

Residents should look out for door hanger flyers and social media posts on when work will be scheduled for their neighborhoods, Hutchinson said. The city will post and update a schedule for the projects on its website.

Drivers can expect traffic delays and may want to take alternate routes during hot-in-place recycling work, he said. While high-performance pavement sealant work is performed, streets will be closed for 24 hours beginning at 8 a.m. and reopening at 8 a.m. the following day.
