My street was just resurfaced. Is this the final product?

Yes and No. Yes, this is the product that is being utilized to resurface all subdivision roads in the unincorporated areas of Williamson County. As expressed earlier in the FAQs, it is much more cost effective to resurface with a seal coat than with HMAC, due the County's budget constraints. No, what you see on your street the day of resurfacing is not how it will look in the future. We spread more rock than is necessary to decrease the likelihood that residents would get asphalt on their vehicles and feet. That excess rock will be vacuumed up (it might take a couple of trips down your street) and the remaining rock (that which adhered to the asphalt) will continue to work itself into a tighter structure with continued driving upon it. The rock will also tend to darken over time.
