TYLER, Texas (KETK) — Seventeen streets in Tyler will be getting a sealcoat in a project that began Aug. 3 and will continue through Sept. 15.
Sealcoats preserve and extend the life of a road by sealing out moisture.
The city’s Engineering Department selected the streets based on pavement condition index scores, an overall rating of road conditions of Tyler City streets on a scale from 0-100, with zero being a pothole-riddled crumbling street and 100 being a newly surfaced roadway, said information from the city.
The streets receiving a sealcoat are:
- North Parkdale Drive from West Gentry Parkway to Garden Valley Road
- South Vaughn Avenue from West Erwin Street to dead end of Pine Street
- Fairway Avenue from Pine Street dead end
- Willowbrook Avenue from West Erwin Street to dead end of Pine Street
- South Fleishel Avenue from East 5th Street to East 6th Street
- Teague Drive from Old Omen Road to Spur 124
- Kent Drive from Old Bascom Road to railroad tracks past Reed Road
- Shiloh Road from Profit Drive to Old Bascom Road
- Meador Cemetery Road from Troup Highway and railroad tracks at the city limits
- Hillside Drive from Troup Highway to Old Troup Highway
- Edna Street from Hillside Drive to the dead end
- Eagles Nest Boulevard from Paluxy Drive to the dead end
- South Donnybrook Avenue from Loop 323 to Shiloh Road
- New Copeland from Shiloh Road to Ashwood Drive
- East Erwin Street from North Beckham Avenue to South Clayton Avenue
