Sealcoating on Wallace Blvd Begins Today

Post Date:09/23/2019 12:55 PM

AMARILLO, TX – The City of Amarillo’s Street Division will begin a sealcoating project today (Sept. 23) on Wallace Boulevard from Hagy Boulevard to S.W. Ninth Ave.

The street is being sealcoated to seal the existing asphalt surface against the intrusion of water and to extend the life of the street. Depending on weather conditions, the sealcoating operation is scheduled to be complete by Tuesday (Sept. 24.) Sweeping of any excess sealcoat rock is scheduled for Friday (Sept. 27.)

While the sealcoating operations are being performed, northbound and southbound traffic on Wallace Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in both directions.

The sealcoating process consists of an application of hot liquid asphalt followed by a layer of small asphalt-coated rock which is compacted into the street’s surface, which will require various lanes to be closed. Any loose rock will be swept to the edge of the street the day after initial application.

The Street Division will do everything possible to minimize any inconvenience. Drivers are reminded to drive with extra caution in the work zones and at reduced speeds to minimize kicking up loose rocks.

For questions or concerns, please contact the City of Amarillo Street Division at (806) 378-6815.
