Reclamite pavement street maintenance projects, which began July 12-13, will continue from 7am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, July 19-20 and July 26-27, in the Industrial Park area of Visalia, from Shirk west to Camp Drive, and Highway 198 north to Avenue 320.
Reclamite seal consists of an application of an asphalt rejuvenating agent, made up of petroleum oils and sand, which provides a simple, one-step method for restoring and preserving durability in asphalt, extending the life of newly constructed pavement, and for corrective maintenance on deteriorated pavements. Once the rejuvenating emulsion has penetrated the existing pavement surface, a coating of dry sand is applied to the surface to decrease tracking of the oils and provide additional skid resistance. The remaining oiled sand not absorbed into the existing pavement is then swept by a street sweeper.
All vehicles, traffic and parked cars must be off the streets that will be reclamited by 7am. The contractor will close the street and apply the rejuvenator with oil. About two hours after it is applied, a sand blotter will be applied to reduce tracking. Traffic or parked cars will not be allowed on the streets until after the sand has been applied. Speed must be held to a minimum for several days to reduce the chance of picking-up rejuvenator and sand on your vehicles.
Updates will be made on the city’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and at www.ci.visalia.ca.us/depts/public_works/streets. For more information, visit www.reclamite.com.
