Asphalt Overlay Neighborhood Notification

The City of Houston 's Department of Public Works and Engineering, Right-of-Way & Fleet Maintenance Division will be in your neighborhood soon to overlay your street.

What is it? . . . A pavement overlay is the application of a layer of hot asphalt to an existing paved road that has deteriorated because of years of wear from traffic and the environment.

Why is it done? . . . The City of Houston's overlay program is used to restore paved road surfaces as part of routine maintenance. An overlay adds structural capacity, riding comfort and skid resistance, which add to the road's safety. Smooth road surfaces also decrease vehicle maintenance costs and improve fuel economy. Pavement overlays help reduce traffic noise, which is important in urban developments. While newly overlaid roads are aesthetically pleasing, roads are not overlaid to improve appearance.

Please open www.publicworks.houstontx.gov/mrow/streetbranch.htm to view the overlay street map.

If you have any questions please contact Tracy Samuel, Office Service Manager at 713-837-7534, or email at Tracy.Samuel@cityofhouston.net .

The following streets from Council District F and Council District C are to be overlaid starting September 2008 to be completed by November 2008.
