Situated just 13 miles from Austin and 60 miles from San Antonio, Buda is home to many commuters. Buda’s proximity to Austin and Interstate 35 have helped fuel its growth. New housing developments and businesses continue to drive the demand for road construction and additional parking lots, while existing pavements require regular maintenance and repair. At Alpha Paving, we help municipalities and property owners with their pavement needs, including new construction of concrete and asphalt pavements, crack repairs, sealcoating, pavement markings, asphalt overlays, asphalt milling and reclamation, parking lot markings and more.
Buda, TX – The History
There is some debate over the origins of the town’s name; some people believe it is a corruption of the Spanish word for “widow,” but others believe that the name originated with Hungarian immigrants who came to the area during the 1800s. What is not argued, however, is that the town began in 1881 when Cornelia Trimble donated land next to a new depot that had been built by the International-Great Northern Railroad to support an extension between Austin and San Antonio. From 1881 until 1887, the town was known as Du Pre, but since there was already a town in Texas bearing that name, the post office requested a change. The town was renamed, and it began to grow by supplying services and goods to surrounding ranches and farms. Growth was halted by the Great Depression, and the town’s population declined from 600 in 1929 to just 300 in 1933. As Austin grew, however, Buda’s population began to increase steadily, reaching an estimated 13,705 people in 2015.
Paving Services for Buda
Alpha Paving offers a variety of services for the government agencies, residents and businesses in Buda. From road construction to parking lot maintenance, we provide a full range of pavement services.
- 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.
- Concrete Work: Concrete remains a popular choice for sidewalks and curbs. In Buda, there are also many driveways and parking lots that have been built with concrete. Concrete is also a popular choice for ramps and ADA improvements. Learn more about Concrete
