The Public Works Department is applying pavement rejuvenation liquids to streets at 15 locations across the City. A map of the locations is at https://www.stcharlesil.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2019%20Rejuven.... 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.
