This project consists of two different product applications. The first is referred to as "crack filling" and involves the application of a thick, bituminous liquid to all pavement cracks within a designated area. The purpose of this is to prevent additional water from entering the asphalt road, which causes further deterioration. The second application is referred to as "pavement rejuvenation" which involves the application of a product that “soaks” into the existing asphalt and prevents it from experiencing failures as soon as the applied product is dry.  This application helps extend the life of the existing pavement without the need for additional overlays or resurfacing. 

During application of the crack fill material, traffic is minimally affected.  The material can be driven upon almost immediately, however, caution should be exercised when workers are present. During application of the pavement rejuvenation material, the road is closed down and all vehicular access is completely restricted.  It typically takes 3-4 hours for the material to dry and for access to be restored.


Project Updates

  • 8-23-17 - The contractor will be in town on Thursday this week, to begin crackfilling. The work will likely take a few days and will be minimally invasive. Please use caution when driving near this construction crew. 
  • A contract has been awarded for the Pavement Rejuvenation portion of this work to Denler, Inc. This is the same contractor that completed the project in 2016 and they will be applying the same product - BioRestor. While the product application is accompanied by a strong odor, it is an environmentally safe product that is preferable to alternative products in many ways. The application takes place very quickly and the roads are only closed for as long as it takes to dry. This is typically about 2-3 hours, depending on the weather. Those properties that will be affected by this work will receive notification letters in the coming days and the contractor will deliver an additional notice (door hangers) no less than 24 hours in advance of the application. The work will take place during the month of September.
