Street improvements underway

Friday, June 24, 2022 by Tai Moses

You may already be seeing Public Works crews in your area, working on seasonal street maintenance in neighborhoods around the city. The annual sealcoat treatment is intended to improve “hundreds of lane miles of neighborhood streets in every Council district around Austin,” according to the news release, in an effort to “help preserve Austin’s streets and extend their life span.” Residents will be notified in advance with door hangers that ask vehicles to be temporarily parked off the street. Sealcoat has to be applied in warm, dry weather, so the work is usually done throughout the summer and into the early fall. Check out the map to see which streets are scheduled for preventive maintenance next.
