Pavement Rejuvenation

September, 24, 2018

The Village is working with a contractor to perform pavement rejuvenation work, which is expected to take place on Wednesday, September 26th and Thursday, September 27th, weather permitting. Door notices will be delivered to each of the impacted homes in advance of the work. “No Parking” signs will also be installed along each of the designated streets. In an effort to cut down on vehicular and pedestrian impacts, the Village has shifted the hours of this work to take place overnight. As it is a quiet application, we do not anticipate any disruptions due to the overnight operation. The material  will be installed starting around 10 PM on both nights. Assuming all streets are cleared and there are no delays, streets should be re-opened around 5 AM the following day. If you need access to your vehicle during this time, we ask that you remove it from your property and park it on an adjacent street that will not be impacted by this work. Coordination with the Police Department will take place to avoid issuing citations for those displaced vehicles. While all “No Parking” zones will still be enforced, any time-limit parking regulations in the vicinity of this work will be relaxed during the project.

The work consists of applying a liquid onto selected asphalt streets with a truck-mounted sprayer in an effort to prevent pavement deterioration. The liquid soaks into the pavement and “rejuvenates” it by restoring flexibility lost during exposure to the elements. The application only takes minutes but it can take up to a few hours for the liquid to dry. Streets will be blocked off during this time and will be reopened once access is restored.

The product that will be applied to the pavement is called Biorestor. This is an eco-friendly product that performs similarly to other pavement rejuvenators but is much safer for the environment. While environmentally friendly, it is accompanied by an odor that some may find unpleasant. While this odor is not typical of most construction projects, there is no cause for concern and no special action that must be taken. The odor fades once the liquid is dry but it can temporarily return during hot weather or rain events for a few weeks after the project is complete.
