LYNCHBURG, Texas – Commissioner Jack Morman announced the start of construction on a new BetterStreets2Neighborhoods (BS2N) project for late November along various roadways in the Lynchburg area. BS2N is a Precinct 2 program dedicated to preserving asphalt roadways by restoring the base and overlaying it with new asphalt to create a brand new, smooth riding surface.

This $1.4 million project will utilize the full-depth reclamation technique, a multi-phased process that recycles the asphalt pavement and integrates a cement slurry to produce a stabilized base for the roadway. This in-depth method is most commonly used on asphalt roadways that have reached the end of their useful life.

The roadways to be improved are: Center Street, Lakeview Drive, Kilgore Avenue, Oakland Street, Burnett Street, Ilfrey Street, and Maple Street. Residents will have access to their homes at all times, and mailing services are not to be impacted during construction.

Traffic patterns may shift during construction, so drivers are urged to be mindful of signage and flaggers when travelling through work zones. Construction is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2019.
