Several streets in San Marcos set for maintenance work

The City of San Marcos has announced that several streets in the community will receive routine maintenance in the coming weeks as part of the city’s ongoing commitment to maintaining its roadways.

Several streets will receive a two-part process of a scrub seal followed by a slurry seal. Other streets in need of less maintenance will receive just the slurry seal. A scrub seal applies liquid asphalt to the existing roadway surface then covers that with aggregate rock called chip. The slurry seal process gives a street a smooth black finish. This type of maintenance to city streets significantly extends the life of existing pavement by protecting the undersurface from the effects of aging and the environment.

Notices will be mailed to affected residences and ongoing information will be posted on the city’s website, www.san-marcos.net (click “Road Work” on the homepage). Residents may sign up to receive traffic e-alerts as the project progresses, and/or they may choose to follow updates on the city’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. Affected residences and businesses will also receive door hangers 72 hours prior to any scheduled work on their street and temporary no parking signage will be placed on streets 48 hours in advance of the work start date.

The work is being done by Pavement Coatings Co. The work will take place over four weeks beginning late September to early October.
