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 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 the streets rehabilitated.

The Randolph reconstruction replaced 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. 

The Schertz Parkway “mill and overlay” involved grinding off the existing pavement surface. After the surface was removed, new layers of asphalt were 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 were be removed. This enabled replacing the existing two inches of asphalt and two inches of base material with four inches of new asphalt. The new asphalt pavement was placed in two layers.

In addition to street repairs, the Northcliffe portion of the project involved making some sidewalk and curb and gutter repairs in the project area. Not all of the sidewalk and curb and gutter were replaced as the main focus of this project was to address the streets. After the concrete repairs were completed, the existing pavement and base material underneath were ground up and blended together. This mixture was cement stabilized and re-shaped before a new layer of asphalt was placed on top of the blended and stabilized material. The new pavement structure will be stronger and more durable than the existing pavement.
