News Details

Reclamite Project wraps up week of Sept. 23

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 7 am. The contractor will close the street and apply the rejuvenator with oil. About 2 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.

Residents in impacted areas will be notified of the work start date no less than 72 hours prior to the work beginning. Public notifications include message boards, door hangers and no parking signs will go up 24 hours in advance of the work. To view the schedule and map of the work to be done, go to http://www.ci.visalia.ca.us/depts/public_works/streets.

To minimize any inconvenience from this project, residents in impacted areas are advised to:

Keep pets and children off the street during application to prevent oil being tracked into the home.

Check pets feet and shoes for residue after application to protect floors.

If you track residue into your driveway or garage, it can be washed off or it will wear off in 2-6 weeks.

Drive slow to prevent pick up. Residue on vehicles can be removed with immediate washing with soap and water.
