The City of San Marcos has announced that several streets in the community will receive routine maintenance from Monday, Nov. 6 through mid-December as part of the City’s ongoing commitment to maintaining its roadways. Streets affected will receive two slurry seal coats applied on different days. The first coat will be a larger rock followed by a second coat of smaller rock that will provide a smoother ride for motorists.

Every year in San Marcos, several streets receive a slurry seal treatment to significantly extend the life of existing pavement by protecting the undersurface from the effects of aging and the environment. Residents directly affected will receive notices two weeks and 72 hours prior to scheduled work so that appropriate parking arrangements can be made.

 "Over the past five years, the city has resurfaced more than 15 million square feet of pavement to provide motorists a safe and smooth ride while traveling through San Marcos," said Public Works Director Matt Little.

During construction work, there will be flaggers and other workers directing traffic to ensure the safe passage of all individuals and for the safety of construction workers between the designated weekday construction hours Monday through Friday from 7 am and 5 pm; some Saturday work will be required. 

“We appreciate continued patience from residents and motorists during these important roadway repairs that will pave the way for lasting improvements," said Little.

Paid for by the city’s capital improvement projects budget, the $465,000 project will be completed by American Asphalt South Inc.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and use caution when traveling through roadwork areas.

Road work schedules, maps and other traffic alerts will be posted to the city’s website at www.san-marcos.net/roadwork. Schedules are subject to change and residents are encouraged to regularly check the website for updates. Traffic alerts will also be shared through the city’s social media platforms @sanmarcoscity on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
