Marcus Cooper, Public Information Officer with the Texas Department of Transportation’s Austin District, has advised WANG about a series of asphalt paving operations that will be taking place along the frontage road of MoPAC over the next few weeks. TxDOT felt it important to inform our area of what is about to happen.

First of all, TxDOT is beginning an eight week project to remove the old asphalt and repave the access roads adjacent to MoPAC beginning in the south near Town Lake and moving north. They started their repaving project in late August and expect to finish by the last week of October, weather permitting. Each week, they will remove the asphalt from a designated section of the access road and some ramps.  The road will remain bare for about four days until a paving crew comes back and paves the road. Folks living along Mopac can expect some access roads to be stripped of asphalt, but it will only be four days until they are repaved with new asphalt.

TxDOT crews will work at night during this project. They will begin on Sundays and work each night through Thursday from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.. This time frame was chosen to avoid causing traffic snarls, especially during the morning commute. Unfortunately, this may generate some noise in the neighborhoods along MoPAC at night. They have advised that they will do their best to minimize the noise in the early morning hours and the time that they spend on the road. You will also see message boards posted along MoPAC telling you which upcoming lanes or exits will be diverted. TxDOT apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this will cause Mopac homeowners. This project will bring new road surfaces to your neighborhood that will last several more years.

If you have any questions, please call TxDOT Project Engineer Lloyd Chance. Mr. Chance can be reached at 512-997-2208.  your help.
