St. Charles to start street work

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Public Works Department will be applying pavement rejuvenation liquids to streets at 15 locations across the city beginning this week, weather permitting.

A map of the locations is at the city's website, stcharlesil.gov. 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, according to city officials.

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. More information is available on the city's website, stcharlesil.gov, or by contacting Public Works Manager – Engineering Ken Jay at 630-377-4418, kjay@stcharlesil.gov.
