City of San Angelo to Start $1.3 Million Street Repaving Project


The $1.3 million mill and overlay project, which will be performed by Reece Albert, a local contractor, is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month. During construction, the streets will not be closed, but traffic may be reduced to one lane with flaggers controlling the flow of traffic. Drivers may encounter delays during the project and are urged to use caution in the construction zones. 

Mill and overlay involves grinding and removing the top 2 inches of asphalt and replacing it with new asphalt to improve and extend the life of the roadway’s surface; doing so also yields a smoother ride.

Last month, the City completed an effort to sealcoat designated streets throughout the community. Sealcoating is a preventative measure that involves applying a thin layer of asphalt and rock to a street’s surface to prevent moisture from seeping into the asphalt and damaging the roadway’s base. The process extends the life of a street’s surface.

The $1.7 million contract to perform the project represented a near-tripling of the $600,000 the City spent on sealcoating last year.
