Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is pavement preservation work and why is it occurring in the Buda area now?
Pavement preservation treatment, contracted through Integrated Pavement Solutions Holbrook Asphalt Co., will significantly extend the life of asphalt streets. The benefits of properly maintained streets include higher property values, a smoother/safer ride, and reduced costs to the community by prolonging the need for replacement.
Pavement preservation roadwork will occur on various streets in the Buda area beginning Oct. 5 and continuing through Oct. 20, generally 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. weather permitting. A high-density mineral bond, with the brand name HA5, roadwork is occurring in the areas of Stonewood Commons, White Oak Preserve, Whispering Hollow, Garlic Creek, and Summer Pointe neighborhoods. Please do not park within 50 feet of any street where the roadwork is occurring. A tow truck will be called for any cars parked on the streets scheduled to be treated that day. Towing expenses will be the owner’s responsibility.
How were streets selected?
There are several different types of pavement preservation techniques utilized on streets depending on their age and condition. HA5 is best used on streets typically between the ages of 2-8 years of age with minimal cracking and no failures. Stonewood Commons, White Oak Preserve, Summer Pointe, and certain sections of Garlic Creek and Whispering Hollow all meet the parameters for best use of the HA5 treatment to extend the life of those streets and are located close together which prevents the need for mobilizing to multiple spots all over town.
What if a resident’s car is parked on a road that is closed for this roadwork?
Work will commence at 7 a.m. and continue to 7 p.m. A tow truck will be called for any cars parked on the streets scheduled to be treated that day. Please do not park within 50 feet of any street being worked on. Towing expenses will be the owner’s responsibility.
What happens if the pavement preservation material somehow gets on a resident’s vehicle?
Barricades will be in place until treatment has dried and is safe for vehicles to travel on the road. Owners who go around barricades will be liable for damage to their vehicles.
