The City of St. Charles Public Works Department began ‘rejuvenating’ streets at 30 locations across the City July 23. A map of the locations is at http://bit.ly/2018STCStreetWorkMap. The roads will remain open during the process.
The rejuvenation process involves applying asphalt sealing liquid that helps keep water from penetrating the asphalt. Less water means less freeze/thaw damage, preventing future cracks and potholes.
After the sealing is performed, sand will be applied to the road surfaces for traction, and the excess will be swept up within a day or two.
