SPAM Rehabilitation Projects

On February 11, City Council awarded a construction contract to Alamo City Constructors, Inc. for the 2018 SPAM Rehabilitation Projects.

This project consists of three different project areas. Randolph between Main and Exchange will be reconstructed; Schertz Parkway between Live Oak and Beck will receive a “mill and overlay”; and a portion of the Northcliffe area will have their streets rehabilitated.

The Randolph reconstruction will replace the existing pavement with a new, stronger asphalt pavement section. The new section will be able to support the traffic loads, unlike the current pavement section. This section of Randolph will be completely closed during the reconstruction process. Traffic will be detoured around the project area. 

The Schertz Parkway “mill and overlay” involves grinding off the existing pavement surface. After the surface is removed, new layers of asphalt will be placed. In order 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 will be removed. This is so we can replace the existing two inches of asphalt with four inches of new asphalt. The new asphalt pavement will be placed in two layers. There will be alternating lane closures in the project area during the construction process. Two-way traffic and business access will be maintained, but it may take longer to get through the project area during construction. Please be patient and allow extra time while going through the project area.

The Northcliffe portion of the project involves making some sidewalk and curb and gutter repairs in the project area. Not all of the sidewalk and curb and gutter will be replaced as the main focus of this project is to address the streets. After the concrete repairs are completed, the existing pavement and base material underneath will be ground up and blended together. This mixture will next be cement stabilized and re-shaped. A new layer of asphalt will be placed on top of the blended and stabilized material. This new pavement structure will be stronger and more durable than the existing pavement. During construction, there will be times the street may resemble a gravel road and parking along the street will not be allowed. Please be patient as we complete this needed project.

Our contractor plans to start work on this project on April 6. The plan is to start in two project areas at the same time. They will start the concrete repairs in the Northcliffe area and the Randolph reconstruction first. Please check back here for project updates.

Randolph is fully complete and the street is open to traffic.  All but two streets in the Northcliffe project area are complete.  Cement stabilization of Wedgewood and Portage began today and will continue tomorrow.  Both streets are expected to be paved on Monday next week.  With the pavement complete, this project will be complete, except for some cleanup and some sodding of disturbed areas.  The project should be fully completed by the end of next week.  The Schertz Parkway mill and overlay will start date on Monday, June 22nd.  The mill and overlay work is expected to be complete in two weeks.  There will be alternating lane closures each day during the construction process.
