The City of West Chicago’s contractor, Corrective Asphalt Materials, LLC (CAM, LLC), will be performing asphalt rejuvenating maintenance on the following City’s streets on Wednesday, August 9, weather depending.
- Commerce Drive, Hahndorf Street, Hill Court, Amber Court, Lillian Lane;
- Ingalton Avenue from Neltnor Boulevard to Hahndorf Street;
- Prince Crossing from North Avenue to Washington Street;
- Grove Avenue from Williams Road to Neltnor Boulevard; and
- potentially, Stockberry Lane from Overbeck Lane to Lehman Drive.
Residents along these streets have been notified of the estimated maintenance times in their areas and there will be no on-street parking during these times.
If you have a lawn sprinkling system that sprays or drains onto the street pavement you should turn it off for the day in which work will be performed on your street and one day following the treatment.
Please see below for more details regarding this necessary maintenance.
- Why is this product being applied to my road?
CAM, LLC will be applying Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Agent to your roads. Reclamite is a product designed to extend the life of pavement by sealing the pavement from the elements. This penetrating sealer is the most widely used pavement rejuvenator in the market for over 50 years, and will assist in minimizing the need for more costly and disruptive methods of street repair.
- How long does the process take?
Once our crew begins on your street, the process will usually only take one to two hours. Please obey all signs and crew direction. Once the road has been treated with limestone screenings, the road will be fully opened to traffic.
- When can I drive on the road?
You can exit your driveway and drive through the work area, but please go slow and stay on the area treated with limestone/sand screenings. Please be advised that driving onto a driveway before the contractor is finished applying the limestone/sand screenings may cause vehicle tires to track product onto driveways and sidewalks. These markings are not permanent, and will naturally fade within a few weeks.
- When will the road be cleaned up?
After the product is applied, an application of limestone screenings will be applied to the road. This is not permanent. The screenings will be swept up in a day or two after the product is applied.
These agents are environmentally safe and extend the pavement’s life. If caution and reduced speeds are taken when driving on recently treated roadways, the transfer of material from the roadway to your vehicle is unlikely. If you do have product that has transferred to your vehicle, it is non corrosive and will not damage your vehicle. A bug and tar remover (available at any local auto parts store) will safely remove any material on your vehicle. Please work with us through any inconveniences during the application process.
