14 Streets in St. Charles to Undergo Maintenance Beginning Sep. 22

The St. Charles Public Works Department will be applying pavement rejuvenation liquids to streets at 14 locations across the city beginning today (Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2020(, weather permitting.

A map of the locations is at www.stcharlesil.gov/projects/2020-street-rejuvenation-program. The roads will remain open during the process.

The rejuvenation process involves applying asphalt sealing liquid to the street that helps keep water from penetrating the asphalt. Less water infiltration means less freeze/thaw damage to the pavement, preventing future cracks and potholes.

After the sealant is applied, sand will be spread over the road surfaces for traction, and the excess will be swept up within a day or two.

For more information, visit the City website at www.stcharlesil.gov/projects/2020-street-rejuvenation-program or contact Public Works Manager – Engineering Ken Jay at 630-377-4418 or kjay@stcharlesil.gov.
