Street & Bridge

Of the City Council's five approved priorities, streets ranks No. 2. Learn more by clicking here.

The Street & Bridge Division is responsible for maintaining all roadways, alleys and pertinent structures related to both. It also performs a wide variety of other tasks, including but not limited to herbiciding and mosquito spraying, picking up illegal dumping, and setting barrels out for flooding and street closure permits.

Sealcoating of City streets begins Aug. 30

The City of San Angelo on Aug. 30 will begin its yearly program of street maintenance. The project should last about three weeks.

Streets in the Fairview addition, Santa Rita and in the University and College Hills areas will be treated, as will Twin Mountain Drive. Maps are posted on the right-hand side of this page. 

Cars parked on the streets being sealcoated could be subject to towing.

“We will alert homeowners beforehand,” City Engineer Russell Pehl said. “We desperately need their cooperation in keeping vehicles from being parked on the streets. We need these roadways cleared to ensure maximum effectiveness of this maintenance program.”

Sealcoating is not to be confused with resurfacing a roadway. Sealcoating is a preventative measure. It involves applying a thin layer of asphalt and rock to a street’s surface. That prevents moisture from seeping into the asphalt and damaging the roadway’s base. The process extends the life of a street’s surface.

The City Council awarded Ronald R. Wagner & Co. of Kendalia, Texas, a $2.4 million contract to perform the sealcoat work, as it has the last two years. The sealcoating of selected streets throughout the city represents the third year of an eight-year cycle to maintain every city roadway in San Angelo.

The City Council last year approved an $80 million, 10-year plan to rebuild San Angelo’s worst streets. The first project – reconstruction of MLK Drive – is halfway done and is scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2018. The first phase of a three-phase project to rebuild Bell Street will begin in the fall. The construction schedule is available below.

Proposed timelines for first round
of street improvement projects

The City Council has approved financing $80 million in street improvement projects over 10 years to be completed in five phases. The timelines below are estimations that will change as projects advance through each process. Replacement of water and sewer lines beneath these roadways will occur in conjunction to the street improvements.
