SCHERTZ PARKWAY REHABILITATION - LIVE OAK ROAD TO BECK STREET

On February 11, City Council awarded a construction contract to Alamo City Constructors, Inc. for the 2018 SPAM Rehabilitation Projects. This project consisted of three different project areas. Randolph between Main and Exchange was reconstructed; Schertz Parkway between Live Oak and Beck received a “mill and overlay”; and a portion of the Northcliffe area had their streets rehabilitated.

The Schertz Parkway “mill and overlay” involved grinding off the existing pavement surface. After the surface was removed, new layers of asphalt were placed. To increase the strength of the pavement section, so it can better withstand the traffic loads, the entire existing asphalt and a small portion of the base underneath the pavement were removed. This was done so the existing two inches of asphalt could be replaced with four inches of new asphalt, making for a stronger surface. The new asphalt pavement was placed in two layers. There were alternating lane closures in the project area during the construction process. Two-way traffic and business access was maintained, although in some cases it did take longer to get through the project area during construction. A big "Thanks" to all residents for their patience during this project. 

The Schertz Parkway asphalt overlay from Beck to Live Oak started on Tuesday, June 23. The work was done in multiple segments, each one being about a 1,200 foot long section. For each segment of work, traffic was restricted to one lane in each direction, on one side of the street similar to the traffic control set up for the reconstruction project between Maske and Woodland Oaks. Each segment took four days to complete, and work started on the south end of the project, near the railroad tracks. The contractor started on the east side of the street first where the old asphalt was milled off and the new layer of asphalt was placed on the first day. The contractor moved to the west side of the street on the second day to repeat the process of milling off the old asphalt and laying the new asphalt. The second layer of asphalt was placed on the the east side of the street on day three and on the west side of the street on day four. Work progressed in this manner northward until the project was completed. The total project took 16 working days (four street segments from south to north). During the construction of each segment, there were times that access was limited across some intersections and driveways. The contractor had personnel helping direct traffic through the intersections and driveways during the construction process. Again, a big "Thanks" to all residents for their patience and flexibility and for slowing down and following the traffic control devices put in place to keep everyone safe!

Schertz Parkway reconstruction: The reconstruction work is substantially complete. The street will be re-opened to traffic on Wednesday, September 2nd. While the street will be re-opened, the project is not fully complete. The pavement surface will be ground in the near future to smooth it out more and improve rideability. Please check back for updates on when the grinding will take place.

Schertz Parkway overlay: The mill and overlay work has been completed. We hope you enjoy the new driving surface.
