Annual Street Maintenance (ASM)
For immediate release:
LITTLE ELM, TX (Nov. 14, 2018) The Little Elm Public Works Department will remove and replace four panels of concrete on Woodlake Parkway between FM 423 and Canyon Lake Drive. The project will begin Friday, Nov. 16 and is estimated to be finished by Nov. 21. Prior to work beginning, Public Works will set message boards with advisory notice of road repair to inform residents and drivers. Approximately 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 16, a work zone taper will be established to close the center portion of the road allowing traffic to carefully flow on each side of the work zone. During the repair, existing damaged concrete panels will be removed and replaced.

For immediate release:
Little Elm, TX (Nov. 14, 2018). The Little Elm Public Works Department Streets Division will begin making repairs on Witt Rd. on Saturday, Nov. 17, beginning between Taliburton Ct. and Lake Fork Ln. in the far east lane.
During the project, existing concrete, rebar, and base material will be removed. Once completed, a plate will be placed in the roadway to allow traffic to pass until Monday, Nov. 19, when quick-curing concrete will be poured. Any barricades or work zone areas will be removed no later than the end of the day Wednesday, Nov. 21, so that streets are clear before the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Town of Little Elm Public Works has kicked off the 2018 Annual Street Maintenance (ASM) Program, which is funded in part by the ¼ cent street maintenance sales tax revenues which voters approved in 2005, 2009, 2013 and again in 2017 by a large majority. Most recent Council Agenda and Discussion can be found HERE (Item #13 Sec. I, pg 8) on our website. Little Elm residents had the opportunity to begin early voting Monday, April 24th, 2017. Saturday, May 6th was the final day to cast a ballot. The work to be performed varies depending on the type of street and need for maintenance and repairs. Residents of these streets will receive a door notice in advance of the construction to provide information about the project and special parking and driving instructions during construction.
The types of projects that will be performed during the ASM are; Crack sealing (gray on concrete and black on asphalt streets), curb repair/replacement, sidewalk repair/replacement, pavement repair/replacement, total rehabilitation of pavement, concrete lifting and injection, also this year we are rolling out a mail box leveling program. We have provided maps on the ASM page of the Town’s website to show where previous year’s projects and repairs have taken placed and where this year’s project will take place. We have also provided the 2018 Annual Street Maintenance & Future Repairs Presentation which contains detailed maps of past, present and future street maintenance.
Funding the Annual Street Maintenance program is extremely important in maintaining an above average condition road system. With the type of soil conditions that exist in Texas, our needs are raised. Poorly maintained roads constrain mobility which significantly raises vehicle operating costs, increase accident rates and their associated human and property costs in communities. Road improvements bring immediate and sometimes dramatic benefits to road users through improved access to hospitals, schools, and commercial areas; improve comfort, speed, and safety; and lower vehicle operating costs. For these benefits to be sustained, road improvements must be followed by a well-planned program of maintenance, which is why the Town of Little Elm Annual Street Maintenance Program is so very important.
