Completed Projects from Previous Year
Street Maintenance - 2019
These projects were completed in house by the city street crew.
Point Repairs of Base Failures
Point repairs of base failures are more extensive than a typical pothole patch as the deteriorated section of asphalt pavement is saw-cut to create a straight edge, excavated to remove the pavement and old base material and any wet or unstable materials causing the failure; then the base is replaced, stabilized, and compacted to create a solid foundation before the final layer of new asphalt is applied. This method is also used to repair street sections where a waterline repair was made in the street.
- E. Stegall Dr. (300 – 400 Blk.)
- Dale Dr. at Jancy Dr. (entire intersection)
- E. Moonlight (700 Blk.)
- E. Shamrock Dr. (700 Blk.)
- Kay Dr. (100 - 102)
November – September 2019
Robinson streets department saw-cut and excavated deteriorated sections of base and asphalt and replaced with flex base or type E coarse aggregate asphalt base (black base) for stabilization, and overlaid repair sections with new asphalt.
Chip seal pavement is an economic method for resurfacing rural streets with moderate traffic in order to maximize the life of the pavement surface. Chip seal pavement typically consists of; cleaning the existing pavement or base surface of all loose materials, applying a coat of liquid asphaltic cement emulsion in order to seal the pavement from moisture and provide a bonding agent for the topcoat, and immediately applying a top coat of 3/8” rock as the driving surface. Once the emulsion cures (minimum 24 hours), the surface is swept to remove any loose rock. After the street is swept, a fog seal can be applied as an added measure to protect the pavement from moisture. Streets with base problems can be reclaimed to recycle and stabilize the existing base before the chip seal is applied. Chip sealed streets typically last between 3 to 5 years, due to the challenging subgrade conditions in the Robinson area, and are typically used to extend the life of the street's surface until a more long-term method can be implemented.
- E. Rocket Road – July 2019
- SH 77 east to city limits (8,500 LF)
- McLennan County performed reclamation of the existing road base.
Robinson streets department; trimmed trees on shoulder, bladed shoulders, and ditches for drainage, added flex base to stabilize problem areas, applied a single-course chip seal surface, and applied for a fog seal finish course.
- S. Old Robinson Rd. – September 2019
- SH 77 to E. Rocket Rd. (1,100 LF)
Robinson streets department; trimmed trees on the shoulder and bladed shoulders and ditches for drainage, reclaimed existing road base, added flex base to stabilize problem areas, shaped and compacted base, applied single-course chip seal surface, and applied a fog seal finish course.
Slurry seal pavement is a newer method for providing a more economic solution to resurfacing streets than overlaying streets with 1.5” – 2” of hot mix asphalt and provides a much smoother surface than chip seal pavement. Slurry seal pavement consists of; cleaning the existing pavement of all loose materials, and applying a layer of liquid asphalt emulsion mixed with aggregates, polymers, and portland cement. The mixture is machine applied and takes just a few hours to cure before traffic is allowed on the surface. Slurry seal pavement is less expensive than a hot mix asphalt overlay but more expensive than chip seal pavement. However, slurry seal surfacing can only be used to resurface existing asphalt streets with acceptable base conditions and only minor surface cracks. Slurry seal pavement typically lasts 3 – 5 years, similar to a chip seal, depending on traffic loads. Slurry seal pavement is an ideal solution for resurfacing minor streets in secluded neighborhoods, where they have been known to last 7 – 10 years, and provide a much more desirable riding surface than chip seal.
- Tony Dr. – September 2019
- SH 77 Tate to the dead-end (490 LF)
- N. Cedar Ridge Cir. And S. Cedar Ridge Cir.
A total of 5,640 linear feet completed.
Viking Construction cleaned and prepared existing asphalt surface and applied a single course of stabilized asphaltic cement slurry in order to extend the life of the pavement and provide an exceptional driving surface.
Curb and Gutter Repairs
- Hawkins Ct. (2 locations in the 400 Blk.)
- E. Shamrock Dr. (700 Blk.)
- Kay Dr. (100 - 102)
- Stefka Dr. (1100 Blk.)
Quality Concrete removed existing deteriorated sections of curb and gutter, leveled and stabilized subgrade, and installed new concrete curb and gutter at proper elevation in order to restore proper drainage and facilitate base repairs being completed in these areas.
