Reclamite Process for Streets

Pavement Rejuvenation Process Begins June 13
Posted on 06/06/2018

Starting on Wednesday, June 13, all Village streets that were resurfaced in 2017 will have a Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Agent applied to them, which is designed to extend the life of pavement by sealing the roadway from the elements. This pavement rejuvenation process will be handled by Corrective Asphalt Materials (CAM), which has been contracted by the Village for this process.

The work was scheduled to begin on Monday, June 11 but has been rescheduled due to damp pavement conditions.

The work should take a week to complete. Check here for a map of all streets that will receive this application.  When the map pulls up, click on the “Roadways” tab and then click on “Surface Treatments.”

The process involves a few hours of work. During that time the street must be free of parked vehicles to complete the maintenance work. The process includes having the street swept, spraying the liquid Reclamite on the pavement one lane at a time, and then applying limestone screenings.  Once the first lane has cured, CAM will then apply the Reclamite to the other lane.

You will be able to exit your driveway and drive through the work area.  Please be aware that driving onto a driveway before the curing process is complete may temporarily stain the driveway and sidewalk.  To avoid this, you may want to park on an adjacent street until the product has cured.

CAM will hand-deliver an additional notice with the specific range of dates for the work to be done.  Construction signs will also be posted at the limits of each street stating “Fresh Oil Loose Gravel” prior to the work taking place.  

When your street is scheduled for the Reclamite process, please remember:

  • If you have a lawn sprinkling system that sprays onto the street, you should turn it off for the day the work will be performed on your street and one day following the treatment.  Water can reduce the effectiveness of the rejuvenator.
  • If you have a lawn care service or other services scheduled that would result in vehicles parked on the street, please adjust your scheduled service to avoid conflicts the day of treatment. 
  • Garbage collection will not be affected.
