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 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 Schertz Parkway asphalt overlay from Beck to Live Oak will start on Tuesday, June 23. The work will be done in multiple segments, each one being about 1,200 feet long. In each segment, the contractor will work on one half of the street at a time. For each segment of work, traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction, on one side of the street similar to the traffic control set up for the reconstruction project going on between Maske and Woodland Oaks. Each segment will take two days to complete, and work will start on the south end of the project, near the railroad tracks. The contractor will do the east side of the street first, then the west side. Work will progress in this manner northward until the project has been completed. Milling and placement of the first layer of new asphalt will be placed on day one and the remaining layer of asphalt will be placed the following day. At the end of each day, the traffic control will be removed and traffic will go back to normal overnight. The total project is expected to be completed in 16 working days (four segments on each side of the street). During the construction of each segment, there will be times that access will be limited across some intersections and driveways. The contractor will have personnel helping direct traffic through the intersections and driveways during the construction process. Please be patient, slow down, follow the traffic control devices, and allow extra time to travel through the project area. Please be extra aware that the traffic control will change every other day as this work is completed.
On November 12, City Council awarded a construction contract to D & S Concrete Contractors for the reconstruction of Schertz Parkway from Maske Road to Woodland Oaks Drive. D & S Concrete Contractors plans to begin Phase I of the project on April 7, 2020, by reconstructing the east side of Schertz Parkway. The existing asphalt street section will be replaced with stronger, more durable concrete pavement. The median island on Woodland Oaks Drive will also be modified. The front of the median will be pulled back, out of the crosswalk area, and the width of the median will be decreased to allow for two lanes for cars approaching Schertz Parkway. The asphalt pathway on the east side of Schertz parkway will also be re-built. The new pathway section will be similar to the re-built roadway between Live Oak Road and Maske Road which was completed in March 2018. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction during construction. The Woodland Oaks intersection will also need to be closed for a portion of the construction process. The complete reconstruction is estimated to take five months.
The City’s contractor will begin the reconstruction of the west side of Schertz Parkway between Maske Rd and Woodland Oaks on Monday, June 22 at 5:00 a.m. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction but will be moved over to the newly completed concrete pavement on the east side of the street. Left turns will be prohibited at Maske and Woodland Oaks. Woodbridge and Woodland Oaks traffic will be able to access Schertz Parkway again. Jonas Woods residents will not be able to access Schertz Parkway at Woodland Oaks as that intersection will be closed. Jonas Woods residents will need to detour to Jonas Drive to access Schertz Parkway during this portion of the reconstruction project. The reconstruction of the west side of Schertz Parkway is expected to take a month to complete.
Please slow down and follow the traffic control devices in the project area. Please also allow extra time for driving through the project area.
