Project Description
As part of the Village’s preventative maintenance program, several streets are treated by spraying Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Agent on the pavement. This treatment is designed to provide sealing to decrease permeability in the pavement and extend the life of the pavement. The streets that were rehabilitated in 2022 will receive the first application, and the streets that were treated with Reclamite in 2018 will receive a second application this year. A second application will further improve the effectiveness of the rejuvenating agent. The entire process will take a few hours and is dependent on the weather. The street will be swept prior to the treatment, the liquid Reclamite will be sprayed on the pavement one lane at a time, and limestone screenings will be applied immediately after the street is sprayed. Once the first lane has cured, which is typically within an hour, the contractor will then apply the Reclamite to the other lane. The limestone screenings will be swept from the street a couple days after the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What work will be done?
Corrective Asphalt Materials (CAM) will sweep your street, then spray Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating agent onto the street. The Reclamite will be sprayed one lane at a time, with each lane taking about an hour to cure. CAM will add limestone screenings immediately after spraying the street. The limestone will be swept off a couple days after the treatment is done.

What is Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Agent?
The Reclamite Rejuvenating Agent is an oil-based spray that aims to provide sealing to decrease permeability in the pavement and extend the life of the pavement.

Why was my street selected to receive this street surface treatment?
The Village has incorporated spraying streets with Reclamite as part of a preventative maintenance program. The Village sprays streets that were recently resurfaced the year before, to increase the longevity of the street pavement. Also, this year there are a number of streets that were sprayed in 2018 that will receive a second application to further increase the effectiveness of the Reclamite.

When will my street receive the treatment?
This project is highly dependent on the forecast, because water drastically reduces the effectiveness of the spray. The contractor has to continuously check the forecast for rain and this may cause a delay. Corrective Asphalt Materials will hand out additional notices to residents that have more specific range of dates. These notices are a great indicator that the treatment will be happening that week.

Can I drive while the street is being treated?
A: Yes, but please try to drive slowly to minimize the spray. The contractor will cone off the lane that they will be working on first to encourage drivers to drive on the other side. Once one lane is complete, they will cone off the other side. You can drive on the street during, and immediately after it has been sprayed.

Whom should I contact if I have more questions?
Please contact the Project Engineer, Aldair Vargas at 847-368-5254 or at You may also call the Engineering Division at 847-368-5250.

When will the limestone screening be swept off?
Immediately after the street has been treated, the contractor will apply sand or limestone screenings over the spray. The contractor will sweep the limestone off the street a couple days after the treatment.

What if I have landscape services or other services on the dates that my street will be treated?
Please try to reschedule the services if possible. If that is not possible, then please coordinate your work with the Project Engineer. CAM will ask your contractor to park on one side at a time, or park on adjacent streets if possible.
