The City of Kerrville’s Streets Division has been recognized with an award from the Texas Asphalt Pavement Association (TXAPA) for paving Rawson Street. TXAPA recognizes quality-built asphalt pavements and honors excellence in production, placement, and quality assurance through its awards program.
This is the second consecutive year the city’s streets division has been recognized with this particular honor for the City Street category. In 2022, the division received this award for paving 3rd Street.
The Kerrville City Council adopted a Pavement Management Plan (PMP) in 2015 to address the maintenance of 321 lane miles in the City of Kerrville. From 2016 to 2022, the council approved approximately $11 million of funding, with maintenance occurring on 242 lane miles. In 2019, a streets bond was approved, funding approximately $7 million of major reconstruction, which was conducted in two phases.
Phase A includes Guadalupe Street, Francisco Lemos, Newton Street, Plaza Drive, Stephanie Drive, and Water Street.
Phase B includes Barnett Street, Cottage Street, Hillside Drive, McFarland Street, Remschel Street, W. Barnett Street, and Wallace Street.
In 2023, in addition to routine maintenance, the streets division has overlaid approximately three lane miles and is expected to total just over seven lane miles. The paving season usually commences in March and lasts until October, due to weather factors.
According to Kerrville Assistant Director of Public Works David Barrera, “We have a great streets division that is resilient to the many challenges our operations face.” For more information, contact the Kerrville Public Works Department at (830) 258-1221, or visit the city’s website at www.kerrville.gov.
