Lone Star Paving will continue repairs on local roadways through the beginning of December, according to a press release from the city.

Repairs will be completed on several roads, including Bermuda Street, Tall Star Drive and Highlander Street, among others. A complete list of roads under repair is available on the city’s website. Minor travel delays are anticipated for residents traveling along these roads, the press release said.


Costing $784,000, these repairs are part of a plan following the city’s pavement assessment in 2018 that categorized roads by pavement condition and established an order for repair, according to Lakeway Communications Director Jarrod Wise. Road conditions were worsened by the 2021 winter storm in February, resulting in the city needing to complete more extensive repairs this year than in previous years, Wise said.

Repairs were previously completed on Lakeway Boulevard, Lohmans Crossing Road and Serene Hills Drive, among others earlier in November. The projects are paid for out of a dedicated road repair fund fueled by a 0.25% sales tax in the city, Wise said. Residents can expect more road repair work on an annual basis in accordance with the pavement assessment timeline.

“Sometimes when you’re driving you’ll be on a stretch of road, and then the next day there’s a new pothole,” Wise said. “This helps prevent that from accelerating. [Road damage is] a cascading effect.”
