City council addressed it’s plans for yearly street maintenance this summer.
$4 million was approved by members but because of the increase in oil fewer roads will be worked on than first discussed.
This is fourth year of maintaining selected city roadways by seal coating. Which is part of an eight year cycle to improve every street in San Angelo.
Crews will be adding thin layers of asphalt and rock to the surface of selected streets which will take about four weeks during the month of August.
“This is something we want to do on a annual basis to maintain our streets and keep them in the best condition that we can,” says city engineer Russell Pehl. “Its in an effort to seal up any cracks that might be in the street and prevent moisture from seeping into the pavement.”
Vehicles will be towed and possible citations may occur if vehicles are not moved out of the street. However the city will provide a seven-day notice to homeowners.
