An asphalt overlay is the application of bituminous paving to an existing paved surface. The overlay process extends the life cycle of an asphalt road, adds structural capacity, and improves the smoothness and appearance of the pavement. The Street Services division administers an annual asphalt overlay contract for the maintenance of deteriorating asphalt roads at various locations in Flower Mound. For more information on the annual asphalt overlay contract, please contact Street Services at 972.874.6400.
Asphalt Slurry Seal
An asphalt slurry seal is the application of a mixture of emulsified asphalt, water, minerals, and other fillers applied directly to the surface of asphalt pavement. The seal coating serves to extend life cycle of an asphalt road by preventing water from penetrating the surface of the pavement and protecting the top layer of asphalt from oxidation and wear caused by exposure to the sun and air while also providing the benefit of improved skid resistance. Street Services administers an annual asphalt slurry seal contract for the maintenance of deteriorating asphalt roads at various locations in Flower Mound.

Miscellaneous Asphalt Repairs
Miscellaneous asphalt repairs include leveling, pothole repairs, and full depth repairs of existing asphalt pavement. Leveling of asphalt pavement is necessary to address minor depressions and surface roughness in limited areas that may be addressed by placing a small amount of asphalt level-up material. Full depth repairs typically consists of the saw cut, removal and replacement of isolated areas of existing deteriorated or fatigued asphalt pavement. Street Services performs miscellaneous asphalt repairs as a reactive maintenance measure intended to restore a pavement to an acceptable level of service due to unforeseen conditions.
