The Town of Little Elm Public Works Annual Street Maintenance Program is funded in part by the ¼ cent street maintenance sales tax revenues. The work to be performed varies depending on the type of street and the 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, and concrete lifting and injection.
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, increases 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 maintenance program, which is why the Town of Little Elm Annual Street Maintenance Program is so important.
