The City of Amarillo will begin their summer sealcoating project of residential streets.  The sealcoating is done once every ten years to residential streets to seal the existing asphalt surface against the intrusion of water.

The project is expected to take three months.  Those streets that will receive the sealcoating are between I-40 and Georgia and Amarillo Blvd and from Georgia to Osage.

The resurfacing project will beign near I-40 and Georgia and proceed northeast through the designated area.

If you live in these areas you will receive a notice on the Friday prior to the week your street is scheduled for sealcoating.  You will be asked to remove all vehicles from the street.  The street will be closed for two-hours.

After the sealcoating is placed, a street sweeper will begin sweeping up excess rock and will sweep on a regular basis until all the loose rock is removed.

Residents are being asked to drive with caution in those work zones and drive a minimal speeds to keep from kicking up loose rocks.

The City of Amarillo will start construction on Fulton Drive between Bell and Coulter on Monday.

The street will be one way traffic during the duration of this project.  Expect crews to be working from 7am - 7pm.  If you travel this road please be advised you can expect delays.  Please use extreme caution while traveling in this area.

Residents will have access to their drives during the construction.

They are expected to be done with this project by August.
