Belton combines small-town charm with proximity to major metropolitan centers, including the state capital, Austin. The city of Belton frequently chooses asphalt pavement for municipal streets and parking lots, and many commercial and residential property owners have also opted for asphalt pavement. At Alpha Paving, we assist customers in Belton with all of their asphalt needs, including crack repairs, sealcoating, asphalt paving and overlays, street maintenance, asphalt milling, pavement markings and parking lot striping.
Bell County and its county seat, Belton, were both named in honor of Peter Bell, who was the governor of Texas when the county was formed and the town of Nolandville was renamed to Belton in 1851. Nolandville had been platted one year earlier, and it was still the only town in Bell County at the time of Belton’s incorporation in 1852.
By the 1870s, Belton had grown significantly. Many two-story buildings, most of them utilizing native stone, were built. New businesses and entrepreneurs arrived, and a telegraph connection provided the area’s numerous cotton farmers with daily market quotes. The town’s population had grown to almost 1,800 by 1880.
In 1881, Belton suffered a setback. In an effort to bring the railroad to Belton, city fathers put up $75,000 and made other concessions to Santa Fe representatives. However, Santa Fe backed out of the deal, choosing to found its own town in the area, which they named Temple. The city sued, but it took many years before the case was finally decided in Belton’s favor. While the case made its way through the courts, Belton signed a contract with the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad and completed a depot in 1882. The arrival of the railroad fueled further growth, and by 1900, approximately 3,700 people resided in Belton.
Today, Belton has an estimated population of almost 21,000. Stillhouse Hollow Lake and Belton Lake are popular destinations for outdoor recreational activities, while the Bell County Expo Center hosts a variety of sporting events and concerts. Many residents commute to jobs in Waco, 42 miles away, but others commute 16 miles to Killeen or Fort Hood.

- Asphalt Paving: Asphalt paving services include the construction of new roads and parking lots, the installation of speed bumps and the application of an asphalt overlay, which is a new layer of asphalt that is applied to existing pavement. The category also includes asphalt milling, a procedure that is often used to smooth transitions between different pavements, repair damage, adjust the pavement around manholes or level the pavement. Milling can also be used to correct drainage problems. Learn more about Asphalt Paving and Asphalt Overlays.
- Asphalt Repair: The most common asphalt repairs involve filling cracks or potholes in the pavement. Breaks in the pavement can allow water to seep beneath the pavement and damage the supporting foundation, resulting in costly repairs. Learn more about Asphalt Repair.
- Asphalt Sealcoating: Sealcoating is an important part of parking lot maintenance. Sealants protect against damage caused by UV rays and automotive fluids. Sealcoating also restores color to faded asphalt, enhancing the property’s curb appeal. Learn more about Asphalt Sealcoating.
