Our 2021 Reclamite project (pavement rejuvenation) is scheduled to begin Monday, July 19th. The project is expected to be completed in 1-2 days. Below is a list of roadways that will undergo the process this year.
- Stinson Boulevard from 37th Avenue to Silver Lane
- Penrod Lane from 36th Avenue to Maplewood Drive
- Maplewood Drive from Penrod Lane to Highcrest Road
- Chelmsford Road from 36th Avenue to Maplewood Drive
Similar to chip seal improvements, reclamite extends the life of the pavement without the application of loose rock on the surface, making reclamite a more cost-effective option for preserving City roadways with less impact to residents and motorists. After the oil is applied, the oil requires time to dry and “cure” which is typically 20 – 45 minutes. A light coating of sand is then applied and excess material swept 1-2 days following initial application.
Why reclamite? When reclamite is sprayed on the road, it penetrates deep into the surface to reinforce the binder that bonds the asphalt and aggregate together. Applying reclamite to a road improves the asphalt’s durability, flexibility and viscosity so it can withstand the effects of the weather, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, freeze-thaw conditions. and the weight of traffic.
